I made these slippers on the Bulky machine and felted them. Then I had the idea for trees with the wind blowing and some of the leaves coming onto the second slipper. It looked dumb since the leaves looked like oranges.lol So I stopped trying to do the leaves and decided on a cardinal to give a little color to the other muted browns. No need to label the right or left slipper when you do this. The hard part about getting the same design on the two slippers is that no two come out alike.. I did not use stencils. They will be for sale in my Etsy store. For those of you that are new to the blog, the pattern for the slippers is free on a website I can send you. They were felted in the washing machine inside a mesh case for 20 minutes and then put on sock stretchers set to the size I want and left to dry . You can put them on your feet when wet to tell when to stop for your size . If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email. The yarn is Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool. Tension 7 for the lining and Tension 8 for the body. Left mouse click to see a closer picture. Here is the site for the free pattern.
