Today we had a facilitator come up to the Fort to teach us a 6 hour course on how to make felt. We made felt boots/slippers as our project. It was so much fun and I learned lots!
We had beautiful colours to choose from to embellish our boots.
My boots are all ready to start the felting process. Most of the time is spent arranging the wool on the boot pattern. Once that part is over, the felting goes fairly quickly.
Kesten came with me to the workshop. I was a little nervous about how it would go, but he was awesome and was so interested in watching everything. He spent the time between the backpack, the playpen, and my arms, babbling and playing and he even squeezed in a couple of naps. What a guy!

Ta da! They are still drying.
It's hard to see the colours in this light, but I love them.
