I have been meaning to start and finish this sewing project for A.G.E.S.
Initially, I was going to make sheepskin slipper boots as I had a spare piece of sheepskin lying around [like us sewing fanatics do!] but unfortunately it was too thick to fit under my sewing machine foot.
So I re-thought and decided on felt slippers with a suede/leather sole.
The Minou chose her sole colour [think of ripe strawberries mixed with a few drops of cerise pink].
I got as far as a paper template, which I then fashioned into two fabric templates [one huge, one just right].
That was many weeks ago. Finally, I cut out the actual fabric and made a start.
As it was so long since making the pattern I forgot to add my seam allowance! So annoying, we’ll see if they turn out too small.
This is only part 1 as I have a way to go yet. Hopefully I will finish them sooner rather than later or else they certainly won’t fit!
