Vicky has knitted her slipper boots in Big Wool shade 054 Vert with scalloped crochet edging in Big Wool 080 Fruity. How will you customise yours?
The knitted slipper booties projects continues... Andrea has knitted hers in Big Wool 056 Glum. The laces are in Kid Classic 828 Feather. Before felting Andrea has sewn up the slippers and then embroiderd the front of slipper using Kid Classic to look like laces. Next is the felting process - hot wash at 60 degrees. When dry Andrea will make a twisted I-cord in Kid classic for the mock ties at the top. Original pattern here: http://www.knitrowan.com/designs-and-patterns/patterns/sula-slippers
