Felted Slippers

I need to sit at my spinning wheel more regularly. My most common excuse is that it's too cold. I usually spin barefoot but then I got the brilliant idea of making felted slippers.

I found this pattern: Felted Mary Jane Scuffs

I finished knitting them in a few days but took forever to finally felt them and sew the strap on. I decided to needle felt flowers instead of applying buttons.

Additionally, I should have knit the smallest size because they are a little too long. I will have to figure out a way to bring up the ease around the back of my ankles.

Felting needle, a little bent but still useable.

Kinda cute, right?

A little saggy around the back of the foot - to be fixed later.
