The slipper that I felted several years ago have given up the ghost. So I needed new ones.
I made these yesterday afternoon. I started with white merino, added a bit of burgundy silk on the tops. Then I dyed the bottoms with more burgundy. The dye went further than expected so the tops are a bit darker than I had wanted but they will work fine.
Here’s a close up of the silk on the wool. I am now looking for that silicone stuff to paint on the bottoms. Around here all I can find is black and I wanted to just use clear. I may have to order it online but first to try the hardware store next to my store in Whitefish to see if they can order me some.
Stunning work. Did you make these with a resist?
Lovely slippers! What brand of silicone do you use?
I had trouble telling that the first ones were slippers! I like the second ones much better! lol.
They look so warm and snuggly and beautiful colours
