Some little felt shoes
They were definitely trial and error, I've never made anything quite so fiddly with felt like this. ... as you can see I started blanket stitching around the first bird, then realised it was a bit tricky with such tiny pieces, filled in with some crude stitches before settling on a kind of applique. I originally made them entirely by hand, but then I reinforced around the base with some machine stitching.
Now that I've made the pattern, I have so many different ideas for little felt slippers floating around in my head. Its a little exciting.
Oh, and they look adorable on Iris, I have my fingers crossed that it will actually get cold enough soon (maybe round easter) so she can start wearing them.
