This is the pattern and materials that you will need for our ‘project’ on Thursday! I hope some of you do this with my sister, Lori, Ann, and I :) If anyone doesn’t have to time to make it to the yarn store, let me know, and I’ll pick something up for you…

In addition: This is what LORI WROTE:
I used 3 balls (50 g/50m) of the Lana Grossa Feltro purchased at Strickeria. This made a slipper for a size 35/36. You can use any bulky weight wool, but it must be 100% wool to felt. Manmade or plant fibers, i.e. acrylic and cotton yarns, will not felt.
Other materials needed: Size U.S. #11 needles (8mm) Yarn needle for sewing the slipper together
I traced my foot on a piece of paper and measured to get the length. You will need to know how long your foot is to make the slipper the correct size.
