I have not forgotten about the Cattail Doll tutorial, but I thought I would write about a pair of merino wool felt boots I made for Kelly yesterday.
You can read how to make felt shoes in one of my previous tutorials;
The materials required were; merino wool, soap and warm water
I drew around one of Kelly’s feet to obtain a pattern and then added 1cm around the circumference of her foot. In addition to making the two shoes, I also made a strip of felt. I sewed this strip of felt around the shoe opening using a blanket stitch to form a boot.
I am very pleased with the end result and have decided to make a pair for myself also.
