2017T2 Felted Slippers in a Day

Louise Snook begint

Learn the process of resist felting and make a pair of warm comfy slippers just in time for winter. Using the hollow form felting technique you can create three-dimensional objects without any sewing, a skill you can take home to make hats, bags and much more.
