Felted slippers...

I was asked many times to design felted slippers. So here they are! Very easy to make, principal is the same as for my Ballet Flats only different sizing. I explain in the pattern also how to felt them - I prefer handfelting as you can control the process very easily. Even if you never made anything felted before you will be able to make these slippers! You just need one skein of 100% wool, 3.5 mm crochet hook, bowl of hot water and washing up liquid and a little bit of patience! :-)
Sizes are:
3-6 months – 10cm or 3.9 in
6-12 months – 11cm or 4.3 in
12-18 months – 12cm or 4.7 in
18-24 months -14cm or 5.5 in
2-3 years – 16cm or 6.3 in
I also added trim - for decoration and to make them nonslid!
Enjoy! :-)

These are SO adorable, Vita! I just wanted to let you know that I've purchased a couple of your patterns a few months ago, made a pair of slippers from your pattern and shared the pictures on the Crocheting Club through facebook. I've had several requests for your pattern and have referred these ladies to your etsy shop. I'm sure they'll fall in love with all your patterns, just as I have...these felted slippers are one of my favorites. Thanks so much!
