The slipper course is one of my favourite courses I just love the end result and the fact that you can actually wear them too is most appealing... though I have to admit, I do like to make them just to have sat next to the fire or on the stairs as pretty decoration!
I also wanted to share with you a recent new find in the form of the handmade buttons that I have used to embellish and complete the look. These stunning buttons have been handmade by a lovely lady called Skye of Button It in the Isle of Lewis, not Isle of Skye as I blundered in my courses video blog below! Skye is a wonderfully creative lady and we met quite by accident and have been sharing our creations and working together ever since. Skye has a keen eye for colour, design and also has a little daring streak in her, by putting together combinations that are fun and quirky too. I will share more of her collection in the coming weeks as I now have rather a gorgeous stash and growing collection of Button It buttons.
But for now I will leave you with the finished slippers adorned with beautiful buttons and to say keeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep felting :)
I have another pair just like these! (giggle giggle)
