We love these multi-colored baby booties Chris makes! Chris shares that she used Merino wool and felts them on a single resist (which is our method also!). She lives on a farm in Western Massachusetts where she tends to the land, grows food, cares for critters, rug hooks and felts.

These rich and lively felted slippers come to us by Kristen Gagnon of Canada.
She started out with the Living Felt Wet Felting Slippers Kit…and has progressed to these beauties!!
She calls them SUMMER BUZZ and made them as a gift for her neighbor, what a treat for those feet!
Kristen writes, “Building on my skills from my first slipper kit, I used merino cross batts – bamboo [inside] and red indigo [outside] – and a multitude of colours from several NZ Corriedale colour packs. All the details were needle felted.
These slippers were so much fun to do!!”
I wish we could take credit for the punny title of this post…but Kristen said we “put some spring in her step” when she learned
we’d be featuring her slips…it was just too good to pass up! 🙂
You can Pin them, and they are on our fb page for more shares!
Suzy Whitney used our kit and instructions with step-by-step pictures to make these slippers by wet felting. When they were dry, she needle felted the “free form” design.
She tells us, “After reading the instructions I did not think I would like the step of putting my foot into the wet wool, but it actually was kinda fun and now they are a perfect fit! I think it was important for me to read the directions several times, and block out enough uninterrupted time.”
Suzy just started felting, and she loves it!
These colorful slippers are sure to keep someone warm and cozy.
Teresa Brooks bought the Living Felt Slipper Kit. She lives in Tasman, New Zealand.
A cozy pair of slippers! We love these, and we love that Fiona Ludgate create them so perfectly with our instructions!
She tells us,
“I actually had started needle felting a little while back, but I just couldn’t seem to get my shapes to work. I got dishartened. Then I saw your slippers kit. Loved the colours, and thought I’d make something using wet felting. I needed slippers anyhow!! Well, it worked!! It is sooo satisfying to finally see the ‘fruits of ones labour’!!! Thanks for the kit, the great service, and for having a wonderful site.”
We were taken by these lovely slippers with the interesting cut-away and design underneath!
Jurga Za is a felter in Lithuania; , the mother of two boys, and she is an architect.
“I still have a wish to work with felt in interior some day. But the slippers are the part of my interior now.”
These slippers are made of natural white wool, then dyed with natural dye made of plants she collected.
” It’s always a little surprise with result I get dyeing natural. They can be little bit darker or lighter. Even nuance of this colour may differ little bit. But this vivid nature makes them so unique.”
For decoration she used banana silk, and the soles are covered with natural latex which makes them not slippery.
- Shoes are made of natural non dyed Lithuanian sheep wool.
“As far as I remember myself I do something with fabric.
My favorite hobby was knitting. But for several years felting takes much more pleasure for me.
I’m very happy to do both for my works.”
