Slipper making with the Merry Bobbins

I went slipper making with a friend on Sunday. The workshop was run by the wonderful Chloe and Kirstie of The Merry Bobbins in a shoe store on Broadway Market.

It was so much fun! We cut up felted wool jumpers, attached them to squishy soft sheepskin soles and turned them into adorable snugly slippers. I chose the round toe; there was also a slimmer pointy toe version.

I only managed one side at the workshop but completed them without any problems at home. You can decorate them however you like, I put pink ribbon bows on mine (after changing my mind millions of times regarding where and how big...) and finished the back edge with some more ribbon.

I ♥ them! They are so cute and really, really comfortable. We were all sent home with the pattern and a leather needle, and I am seriously contemplating making some more as presents.

There are still some places left in the 2 remaining slipper making Sunday workshops - if you're in London, they're highly recommended! ~♥~
