Felted Slippers – One Up from Knitted Ones

Ever since the summer holiday when I was working on the felted bag project, I wanted to use the felting yarn in more projects that were fun, easy to knit and useful. My post on knitted slippers gave me the idea to return to the old faithful – felted slippers. Here they are:

This time however, I had the courage to take photos of the item in production. I even felted them at separate times to show the difference in size as it really needs to be seen to be believed.

This is the slipper on the needle, as it were.

The pattern is incredibly straight-forward. It can be knitted in the round or flat and then seamed. One slipper is a couple of hours work at most. The pair can be whipped up in an afternoon!

Just to show the 40% shrinkage post felting, this is what the slippers look like pre and post felting (not really a great idea to felt them separately but I just wanted to show the difference).

Once done, you can decorate to your heart’s content and wear with pride. I have a number of kits available which make perfect Christmas presents for young or old, made up or just as a gift for the craft-minded. Try them and your toastie feet will thank you.

    • They are SO easy to make. It’s in effect a rectangle with some decreases for the toe. The felting is so much fun – it’s like alchemy! The kits are selling fast so if you’re interested let me know….
