I have always loved wool felt. So, I'm not quite sure why I never learned the art of felting. Maybe because it looks so time consuming and complicated. I have a friend who's willing to teach me...maybe someday.
I did try my hand at making a pair of cotton felt booties. Well, actually one felt baby bootie.
I bought a Simplicity pattern and a 59 cent piece of cotton felt. The felt that's already cut into a small square, and used embroidery thread I already had at home.
I was just playing around with the shoe, thought maybe if it turned out really great, I would make a pair of real wool felted booties. For some reason, I only made this one.
(I have a closet full of unfinished projects!)
Well the little bootie has found a home (or foot I guess I should say). One of Jessie's friends, Jill, just had a baby girl and she wants to learn to make these. So I was very happy to turn the project over to her! Baby Tillie will soon be kicking around in her new boots! One of many pair I'm sure she will have!
|My lucky find at TJ Maxx last year!|

Fits my ipod perfectly!
One unfinished felt project.
One felt project someone else finished.
Thanks someone else!
