Here is the first project that I made for the Handmade 2011 Challenge. It was for a friend that I had the pleasure of recently meeting through Red Tent. She had wanted to attend the Slipper for the Soul workshop being held at the Invisible City but was unable to. So I decided to make her a pair of the slippers that she would have made.
I used a general felted slipper pattern and they knitted up in a weekend. I had to felt them about 3 times before I got the feeling and size I was looking for. To add a little something to the slipper I put some glass beads on the toes.
She loved them! I am thinking there are more of these next winter!
