Felt Infant Shoes

I made these shoes with a friend for her son, using a pattern modified from patternbee.com .




The felt was made by washing a thrifted lambswool sweater in very hot water.  The cuffs are tubes made from a small thrifted cotton t-shirt, and a rubber kitchen mat was sewn onto the sole for friction.

I am not sure how functional they are as outdoor shoes  Roll Eyes, but the felt was really soft and warm, so they would definitely make good slippers! Smiley
