I have managed to finish the first stage of my felt boots. They are now felted. You saw the tongues already. http://wp.me/p1WEqk-16m.
Next I had to make the loops so I will be able to lace up the boots.
First you make short ropes with fluffy ends
Then you have to felt them into another piece of felt. then I can cut them out to sew them onto the boots.
Then onto felting the boots.
You do not wrap all the sides around the resist.
You have to insert the tongues.
Here they are cut down the middle and you can see me working the back so there will be no ridge.
Here is one after fulling bedside the unshrunk boot.
and both boots done, on top of one half the resist.
I have started to make the embellishments.
Have you tried anything new lately?
