This is a quick catch up post, just to record a couple of felting projects that were recently finished. The first is a pair of Bergschaf slipper boots, an early present to myself! I made them using a scaled up version (and then some!) of the fairy boots I made in the summer. The two boots are made as one, using a flat resist, and then cut apart before fulling and shaping. They are the warmest and most comfortable slippers I have ever had. I can see these lasting for years so I’m intending to embellish them with hand embroidery at some point over Christmas.
The second project was a wet felted cushion for my elderly aunt who is nearly 90 yrs young and loves warm colours, particularly orange. She lives in a small flat, there is nothing she actually needs but she does love anything felted so I thought this Merino cushion would be something she could get some enjoyment from looking at.

Looking forward to seeing the embroidered boots, they look like they will be very cosy and warm to wear and I am sure your aunt will be delighted with the cushion, such beautiful, vibrant colours she can’t help but love it!
Thanks, spoke to aunty Das today and she loves her cushion. The slippers are so cosy I am living in them!! Hope you are having an enjoyable Christmas Day.
The boots are impressive – so well made – and your aunt cannot fail to love the pretty cushion.
Thanks, I actually impressed myself with the boots! I really wasn’t too sure if the technique would be a success done full size but it worked so well I will be making more!
The boots look nice and warm. I look forward to seeing your embellishment. I’m sure your aunt will love the cushion it is very cheery! An dof cocurse, made by her talented niece. 🙂
