It is winter. My feet are cold and even though I made my “Toasty & Sweet Toes” I was totally inspired by the wonderful creations of fellow BurdaStyle Member Evette and her two wonderful projects:- http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/beaded-caramel-slippers and http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/maroon-morocco-or-maybe-india I too used the Martha Stewart templates – I borrowed more from them than Evette – just because I didn’t want to spend too much time being creative with these ones as my feet needed warming!! I used the “branch” template that Martha gave – but altered the pattern and added my own bird (nothing can not be improved without the addition of a bird – except meals (I’m a vegetarian)!). If you’ve seen my latest skirt project – you may recognise the bird. I should give it a name with all the appearances it’s been making lately!! Suggestions appreciated! I did however, hand top-stitch around the template for a bit of contrast and definition and gave the bird a “peeper”! I used wool felt and leather for the bottom sole. I also popped in some inner soles between the sole layer for extra padding – “ahhhh – padding”!!!! Enough with the cheesy Simpsons quotes already! Thanks for inspiration Evette!!! I am really sorry – but I have tried to link this project to yours as “Based On” but no luck!
Wool felt in green and grey (my two favourite colours). Soft leather and inner soles.
