I started working on the slippers on that weekend, and it didn't take me too long to finish knitting all the parts.
then I did some research on 'felting' because I've never done it before, but it didn't look that hard. however, our washing machine is an old front-loader, and it seemed having a hard time felting. in addition to it is a front-loader having some trouble felting, compare with the top-loader, maybe the hottest set water wasn't hot enough? hm :I well, that's done anyway and took them a few days to dry(I'm sure it would have been quicker outside!)
actually they are technically NOT DONE yet,,,
the pattern called to put something, like puffy paint, on the bottom sole to give them more friction.
yet my housemate gave me a better piece of advised to sew leather on the sole to make them more durable and warmer.
I think it's a great idea and I'd love to try that.
that will be my first project with leather as well.
a simple, no stress project for a first timer!
I will tell you all about it once I get them done :)
