Felted knitting is the perfect material for the coziest, comfiest slippers for little feet. Felted wool is a natural fiber that keeps feet at the perfect temperature because it breathes. They are also soft enough to wear barefoot. These slippers make a very special gift and can be personalized by choosing a special yarn color. Get creative, try different embellishments and make your slippers unique!! I hope you enjoy creating them! These slippers are knit and then felted in the washing machine to create a soft, sturdy felted fabric. It is great fun to see the knitted slippers shrink down to adorable slippers any kid would love to wear. Your pattern purchase also includes pattern support! If you've never tried felting before, this is a great first project. Just email me and I'll be happy to help you out if you get stuck or have questions:) You can purchase leather bottoms for these slippers from my Etsy shop!!
