A pair of merino wool felt boots for Kelly

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.
