Project info
cozy winter FPK slippers with leather sole
French Press Felted Slippers by Melynda Bernardi
Needle and yarn
Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted
Happy Knits in Portland, Oregon

my first knitting project of the season, also my very first felting project!
it was very easy and quick, although I had a little trouble with felting with a front-loader washing machine…

actually they are technically NOT DONE yet,,,
the pattern called to put something, like puffy paint, on the bottom sole to give them more friction.
yet my housemate gave me a better piece of advised to sew leather on the sole to make them more durable and warmer.
I think it’s a great idea and I’d love to try that.
