Fishy Felted Slippers

I am really happy to have finished my latest pair of felted slippers. These are the 4th pair i have made since doing a felted slipper course with local felt artist & textiles teacher Sue Terrey.





The photos show a few different stages of the slipper making process, and the finished work of art - if i do say so myself!

They were made as a birthday present for a fish mad 5 year old boy, Luke! ( i think he liked them : ) )

It was great to try and portray an illustrative ocean scene using wet felting techniques and then add a few little details using needle felting, i only snapped one needle! I also included some angelina fibres, some metallic nylony stuff (sure its got a posh name) and some curly Wednesleydale too! All good fun!!
