slippers are up in the shop!
i found some inspiration in my japanese craft books, and played around with this pattern:
from this book about scandinavian inspired felting:
but then i liked the shape of these slippers (although i didn't combine the felt with knitting):
from this book: felt and fabric rendevous.
and used a modified version of that pattern, where each slipper is made individually around a flat resist. then i cut a vertical slit for the opening, and formed them by hand so that they have a back.
i can make them in custom sizes/colors. the slippers and the books are available in my shop.
UPDATE 10/14/08: the scandinavian felt book is currently sold out. i'm working to restock but i keep a small inventory, so if you want a copy, let me know and i can reserve one for you.
