Awww, so teeny and cute!  I've never seen glass eyes for sale, were they a specialty order?

As with all awesome things I own, they came from Etsy Smiley

Bonjour! I am le tiny French kitty, Pierre.

I am a needle felted gift for sunshine's dad, made from scraps of alpaca & wool roving, glass eyes, and a teeny scrap of t-shirt for my neckerchief. Le mew!

These are so pretty! And they look very well made, too. Other than pulling them out before the spin cycle, did you do anything special to make them keep their shape? My felted things usually end up super wonky and there's no way I could make two the same size!

Ohhhh, I know that feeling  Sad

These guys rode inside a knotted pillowcase, and I threw in an old pair of jeans for extra agitation. Believe it or not, they held their shape pretty well on their own. I did coax them a bit with my hands while they were still damp, then shoved them on my sister's feet to make sure they dried foot-shaped. Not sure if any of that helps, but fingers crossed for your next project!

Do you think these would last on carpet?

I hope so! The bases are knit with a triple strand of wool, then felted to a dense, thick fabric. I've used the same felting method (double stranded instead of triple, though) for a handbag, and so far, still tough on the bottom. Time will tell, I suppose!

A last-minute project to send a bit of comfort to my Auntie Fay in Vancouver. She took a nasty spill & damaged her eye socket, so I thought something special to help her heal would be in order.

My parents & sister were visiting while I knit these, and I was lucky enough to sneak into the condo they rented to use a non-coin-op washing machine. Hooray! What a difference it makes, to be able to pull them out before the spin cycle. The last time I made these, it took quite a bit of fighting to get them into a vaguely slipper-esque shape. These were no trouble at all, and the Lion Brand Fishermens Wool I used really does felt amazingly well.

I squiggled a little puffy paint on their bums for grippiness-- it's not very symmetrical but definitely does the trick!

The pattern was French Press Felted Slippers from French Press Knits. Glorious pressed-flower button from my local yarn shop <3
