Knitted & Felted Ballet Slippers

I have been working on a Fiber Trends Felt Ballerina Slippers knitted pattern. I used Valley Yarns Berkshire yarn. It is 85% Wool and 15% Alpaca. The one on the right is after two washings. It shrank up about 5" in length and 3/4" in width.

You can read about the other pairs I have made here.

I put silicone glue on the bottom of one pair for in house use. I wanna wear them everywhere too. I was thinking of leather or something.

I am fascinated by this pattern - they look adorable. Were they very hard to make?

If you know how to knit in the round, the pattern is not that difficult. The hardest part was figuring out the sizing. You only really know this when you make your first pair.
