Solstice love

A wool child's sweater from the thrift shop becomes a Solstice sweater with a touch of embroidery.
These felted wool sweater slippers were easy enough for a total beginner.

Solstice was wonderful and very simple. Through the generous donation of a dear friend who sent me an entire box of felted sweaters (Thanks Kiri!) I was able to make sweet gifts for my family that were truly needed.

can you give me a step-by-step for the slippers? These are beautiful creations.

I traced the soles of some rather surprised looking shoes and based the rest of the pattern off of this site: Martha Stewart
The soles are doubled in thickness to keep one oh so snuggly.
Loving you.

I would have loved to have seen the faces of those surprised shoes. You are so cute!
