I actually completed these quite a while ago, before I started my Miette. I decided they were a good practice knit!
I learned to felt- It is a magical process. Hot soapy water and lots of friction! Check out this before and after shot:
I felted by hand like the pattern said to and phew! That's hard work! I probably ended up felting each slipper for an hour! (Not all at once though. I did a few sessions because after my first, they hadn't shrunk down enough.)
These guys are warm and cosy but I'm not going to wear them scuffing all around the house- they are too cute and I don't want them all ruined and dirty (I wear my slippers hard, lol). So these will be mainly feet up bunnies! I know, what's the point of making slippers if you don't wear them a lot? ummm.. because they're cute! But maybe I should buy some leather soles to put on the bottom...
