You may remember our slipper course from last month and the great fun we all had making our slippers, well luckily I can now share some makes from that day.
Laurie had never felted before, but wanted to learn how to felt as she has her very own flock of sheep! Yes her very own flock of sheep. Laurie and her husband have a farm in Staffordshire as well as having another day job on top. Keeping sheep on their farm meant that the fleece was generally going to waste and so Laurie put her thinking cap on as to how to best utilise this. Laurie came on the course having never done any wet felting before, she had dabbled in needle felting but not wet felting. I think I shall let Laurie's slipper do the talking and you can see you for yourself what beautiful things can be achieved in felt, having not had any previous experience.
Laurie's Finished Slipper - there is another to match!
Another lady that came on the course was the lovely Amanda a very experienced and accomplished crafter. Amanda had wanted to make slippers for such a long time and had even had a go at felting some before she came on the course, but felt (if you pardon the pun) that they weren't quite right. So after a few emails, Amanda decided to book on the course and the results are fabulous. Amanda chose a beautiful colour combination and has finished them with suede slipper soles.
Thank yo so much to both ladies for letting me share your wonderful creations on my blog. It was a great fun day and I am delighted you have found a new craft.
