Something simple

It’s a long time since I made such a plain simple piece of felt. My wool of choice was Icelandic as it felts very well and gives a lovely hardwearing felt.

It really is plain isn’t it?  I have a pair of beloved wool slippers that have stretched and are now a little sloppy on me. They’re expensive to buy and as there’s lots of wear left in them I didn’t want to go the expense of a new pair.

A pair of Icelandic wool inserts is my answer. The piece of felt I made is large enough to provide a second pair of inserts so I’ve put that away somewhere safe (will I ever find it again?) for future use.

Not only are my slippers less sloppy, they’re super cosy too!
