Last year on a visit to Melbourne I went to a beautiful needlework shop where I saw the pattern for these precious little felt slippers and I knew I had to make them. How lucky that there is a new baby on the way.
Of course, they are totally impractical, can never be washed and, therefore, will probably never be worn. Added to which they have flowers on them and if baby is a boy I don't think Stewart will approve of his son wearing anything so pretty.
I really love the little buttons.
They were such fun to make. It is ages since I have done any embroidery and it reminded me what a lovely and gentle process it is. In fact, I so enjoyed it that I am going to try to embroider some little singlets. I will have to try to make them a little less pretty so that they can actually be worn.
