jasmine's French Press Slipper(s)
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! It is a beautiful day here in the greater Seattle area and the birdies were out singing in all their harmony this morning. This past week I have been working hard and knitting whenever I have a free moment. Above is a cute little picture to show you one of the French Press Slippers that I have made (the other is still drying). I knitted the smallest size and hand felted the devil outta it (yes, with my bare hands)! Alright, I actually didn't do most of the felting - my husband did, but I was there to supervise. And, WHA-LA! We have adorable, little, pink slippers. They were really quick to knit up (honestly, only a couple hours), but then I took my sweet time getting the felting done.
The charming little ceramic buttons that I have next to them in the photo are buttons that I was thinking I might use to sew the straps on with, but I'm wondering whether ceramic is a good idea for slippers and especially slippers that will belong to my eight year old?? None the less, the buttons are cute and I couldn't resist putting them in the picture. These buttons are from Jenn at Landenroad or you can visit her on Etsy here. She and I met on Ravelry a few months ago and I traded some of my sock yarn for some of her lovely buttons. Now, I need to just find the perfect item to put them on.
