More Felted Slippers
I followed instructions, making elastic loop buttonholes on the ends of the straps and sewing on buttons to the slipper itself. On reflection, in future, I shall sew or glue on Velcro strips or circles - I think it would be easier for little girls to manage.
These little blue slippers were made with left over blue wool yarns - I used every scrap of blue yarn double stranded, and ended up with a nice ombre effect - now as I have been making felted clog slippers in many different colours for adults over the last 5 or 6 years - I have lots of odd balls and half balls of wool yarn left over - so I have a lot of choices to make the Ballerina slippers with - I think they would sell on Etsy pretty well - and the money can go to helping Knitting for Brisbane's Needy - my main reason for knitting....!!!!!
The Ballerina slippers took me only a few hours to make one pair!! I can make a pair of felted clogs in 24 hours knitting.....
If anyone would like a pair of felted clogs made, they will cost you $40 AUD PLUS postage to your address, whatever Australia Post charges to your area. The Ballerina slippers will cost $25 AUD for a Child and $35 for an Adult size, PLUS postage. Just saying..............
The Fibertrend patterns are for sale online - just Google to find them.
