If you are going to try felting Diana Sullivan’s sew as you go lined slippers, here are some more suggestions. This is a woman’s medium size. I added four more stitches , two on each side to allow for more felting without getting too narrow. I will add 6 stitches when I do them again. I used tensions 7 and 8, 8 for the outer layer. I was not sure if I had enough cream color to do the whole lining so I just used it when I did the toe shaping. If you make these I would also tell you to stitch the seam closed with a piece of matching yarn so you don’t get lines. I used the seam to needle felt the stems so they matched. The wool I used was Paton’s. The roving is a blend of yellow, orange and green giving the petals a different shade from each other. I can’t tell you how light and good these feel on your feet. I think they feel lighter because you don’t feel side seams. They will be for sale in my Etsy shop and will have rubber circles on the bottom where the ball of the foot and the heel of the toe are so they don’t wear out. In fact, I put the rubber circles on the bottom of the ones I made in brown with the poppy and you don’t even feel that they are there. These slippers take about 6 ounces of yarn.
