Make A Pair of Luxury Merino Felt Slippers
Where: Dead Dolls House
When: Thurday 1st March 6.30 - 9.30
We've hunted down the very loveliest thick Merino felt for this workshop, so you can make yourself a pair of luxury personalised snuggly slippers.
For the upper part of the slipper, we use 100% Merino felt, coloured with all-natural dyes to achieve delicious colours. For the soles and insoles we are delighted to use hardwearing wool felt soles and insoles in ecru from Joe's Toes so your slippers will still be keeping you cosy for years to come.
In the workshop, we'll show you how to transfer the pattern for the upper onto the felt and cut it out neatly. Then you'll add reinforcement and embellishment to the fronts, before aligning all your slipper parts. Next we'll show you how to stitch them all together, and finally you'll be able to heat transfer your own name label in gold or silver onto the insole and monogram your initials on them. Without that final touch, no-one would believe made them yourself!
We will be in touch shortly before the session date to provide you with colour choices for your uppers. We will also ask you to confirm the name you'd like on the label and we'll pre-cut a gold or silver vinyl "Made by ..." label for you to heat seal on to the insole of your beautiful slippers.
We'll send you details of all the suppliers along with the patterns to make the slippers again, so if you want to spoil someone rotten you can make them a pair too.
