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.

Feltmaking with Gail Crossman Moore

This weekend I took a feltmaking class with Gail Crossman Moore at the San Gabriel Bead Company. We created a flower lariat like this one from her website. We learned several wet felting techniques along with needle felting and bead embroidery. It was fantastic.
