Ma's slippers
French Press Felted Slippers by Melynda Bernardi
Needles & yarn
US 13 - 9.0 mm
Patons North America Classic Wool Worsted
2 skeins = 420.0 yards (384.0 meters), 200 grams

2 different dye lots of yarn, oops. Working the two balls together so it shouldn’t matter though. Used pretty close to exactly half the yarn.

08-11-2011 Starting 34 of sole 2.
08-22-2011 slipper 1 sewn together. Finished knitting all other pieces.
08-23-2011 sewed together slipper #2.
08-24-2011 just finished felting. They took a lot longer to felt than the felted fish I made last month.
08-27-2011 all seamed up. I used “Alex Plus acrylic latex caulk plus silicone” for the soles. It made them completely non-slip. It’s not the most beautiful finish on the soles, but Mom isn’t gonna go flying across the floor while wearing these slippers.
