Sounds good, might be a good idea to buy them larger than you need for yourself, especially for an adult size slipper.
You can always shrink felt but it is impossible to stretch it. It they come out too large put the slippers in the tumble dryer for a while or alternatively, apply soap and warm water and lots of friction by rubbing the wool with your hands. The more rub the more the wool will shrink, down to the size you want.
These shoes are being sold in a store for P each. I'll try making my own just for fun. Glad you liked the tutorial. I have not tried Corriedale but will definitely look out for some on e-Bay. Thanks for the visit and the comment, it is valued and appreciated. Great tutorial on wet felting slippers.
This can be found on etsy 0r eBay. Corriedale might be a bit stronger wool too. Line the felted slippers or the beach shoes? I have not lined the slippers and don't really see the need as one can always wear a pair of socks when wearing the slippers.
The thrift store is a great place to start, or you can make duct tape shoe lasts or use resin or wood shoe lasts. The next best would be to use the template method, make the slippers flat and use one of the alternatives, wooden, duct tape or beach shoes to shape them on..
I very much appreciate the share, thank you. What a novel idea. I'd love to make them for friends. Guess I'll have to get a supply beach shoes in different sizes. Perhaps the thrift stores? Is it possible to line them?
Glad to hear that you found the instructions to be clear on how to make the wet felted slippers. I am sure you could pull of a pair - the perfect Christmas present. These slippers are adorable, and you have provided such clear instructions that I am quite sure that even I could pull off a pair, perhaps for the granddaughters for Christmas!
Voted up and shared! I appreciate your taking the time to comment Jodah. I especially appreciate your sharing the instructions with your wife. I look forward to hearing how she gets on. Thanks too for the vote up. Terrific hub with clear step by step instructions Sallybea. My wife thinks these slippers are great and she is very crafty so I think she will give them a go.
That sounds like a great idea - I wonder if you saw the little mice slipper tutorial I published last week? Another cute idea and one which turned out very well.
One of my little friends was really enchanted by them and wanted to know how he could make some. Bless his little cotton socks, he is only six but already well into crafts. I appreciate the vote up, useful and up and always appreciate a comment about my photography as it is something I love to do. Had it not been for photography and my wondering how I could best utilize those skills, I might not have ever arrived on these pages: What a cute little project!
I think they would make great Santa shoes for kids with some white buttons and that curvy ribbon on them. Well done on showing every step of the technique - I admire your patience in photographing it properly so that people can follow it easier. Voted useful and up!
I appreciate your stopping by and very much appreciate the very kind comment, thank you very much. Your layout and content covering this craft is very nice and well done.
I would love to have a pair of these any day. I hope you wife enjoys the tutorial. I appreciate your taking the time and the interest to show you her this one. Hi Sally I am doing well and I admire your creative ideas shared with us. Have a great week.
Nice to see you again. I am delighted to be back. I did not realize how much I was missing this community. It makes me feel good just to get back doing three of the things I love doing - writing, felting and taking images of my work: This is so interesting!
I haven't been on Hubpages too much lately and by the comments I see you haven't either. I have been wondering what felting I'd and this is amazing! Thank you for sharing. A roving is a long and narrow piece of cleaned and more often than not dyed strip of wool fibers, They are soft and beautiful to touch. Rovings are produced during the process of making spun yarn from wool fleece, raw cotton or other fibers.
Their main use is in spinning but it can also be used for specialized arts such as the one above - namely 'Wet felting'. You will find an amazon advert above which will take you to Amazon where further examples of merino wool roving suitable for wet felting can be purchased. I sometimes purchase from e-Bay but more often than not, I buy from a specialized shop here in the UK over the internet. I would suggest that you Google Merino Wool roving, or 'tops' - make sure that the ad states that it is suitable for wet felting and I think you will find as I did that it can be purchased in Texas.
When starting out, I would buy sufficient to do a few small projects such as booties, slippers, a hat or similar. You will find more simple wet felting tutorials on my profile page. I would suggest that you buy a bundle of mixed bright colors if you can. This will give you lots of choice for future projects. Combine the complementary colors they provide and you shouldl be delighted with the effect. Thank you for your question and also your interest.
I am always delighted to have your stop my MsDora - your comments and thoughts are always appreciated. You have a lovely day. The only thing I'd like to know is what is wool roving? I've never heard of it. Maybe I could find it online. This is a well done hub - the instructions are very well done.
I might try it if I can find the stuff I need. Sally, it is unlikely that I will try this, but I admire your passion for this craft. I read through the instructions completely. Another creative project which I'm sure wet felters will be proud to accomplish. Great to hear from you again. It makes me realize how much I have missed both felting and writing. So pleased to hear that you find the process of wet felting fascinating - time to give it a go then - perhaps!
So great to see you publishing this day! I have been so busy this summer here too and have not published anything in far too long. I hope to remedy that soon. I do not know if I could do so well as you have here, but your instructions and photos are clear and of great help to anyone who would like to try to project.
Yes, it has been quite a while. I hope you are doing well in your neck of the woods and I much appreciate your continued support as always. I have been experimenting with a few new ideas and hope to write more about those soon.
Hi Sally it has been a while and you always come back with a creative idea. I really like the way you explained and the photos are most informative. Most likely I would try this project. Voted up, interesting and useful. I am afraid I have been much more busy than usual and the weather has kept outdoors for much of the time. Come winter, I will be making up for my tardiness. It's good to see you writing again. Although this has nothing to do with me, I do enjoy seeing you write about something you obviously know a great deal about.

Grate the olive oil soap Grate a small quantity of soap and add it to a squeeze or spray bottle. Place the shoes on a stand! Place the shoes on a stand of sorts.. I balanced these shoes on two small coffee mugs. Later I took the shoes off the cups and inserted my hands into them. Wet the shoes Begin by wetting the shoes with a little of the hot soapy water.
Layer one Start at the bottom of each shoe and work your way around each shoe. Uneven layers will result in thin spots occurring on the finished project. Massage the wet fibers Massage each completed layer of fiber with your hands or use a piece of folded bubble wrap.
Layer two Repeat layer one, alternating the direction in which place the fibers down onto the shoe. A note on the use of scissors! Turn back any excess fibers to the outside edge of the shoe and cover with a few thin fibers Maintain a neat clean straight edge. Keeping edges neat and tidy In the image below you can see that the edges are neat and tidy. Layer 2 Continue working around the shoes, keep the layers even and wet them down carefully with your fingers. Wet the fibers Continue wetting and smoothing until you are perfectly satisfied with the second layer.
If you feel your layers are too thin, add a fourth layer. You have two options! Option One You may decide to felt in a more traditional way which is to do it all by hand. Option Two Alternatively you may wish to rub the slippers for a little while and when the fibers are sufficiently stable enough to allow the shoes and slippers to be inserted into a pair of cutoff pantyhose without them falling apart you can knot the ends of the pantyhose and insert the whole of the project into the tumble dryer for five to ten minutes.
Remove the tights Peel the stocking from the wool. One slipper having had the pantyhose removed The stockings are easily removed from the wool fibers but keep an eye out to make sure that the fibers don't attach themselves too firmly to the pantyhose. This project right is really very easy. A size comparrison As can be seen in image below, the slipper has shrunk very little but should you want to shrink it further, put it back into the dryer with the shoe still inside and tumble it for a little longer.
Finishing off your slippers There are many ways to change the look of your slippers. Sew on small leather soles to help prevent children from slipping on smooth wooden floors. Creativity is yours to do what you feel will make your project unique to you as an individual.. Wet felted slippers How likely are you to try this project? Most unlikely Very likely See results. Can rubber shoes without holes be substituted to make wet-felted slippers?
I'd appreciate so much if you could help me! Thanks for the vote up and the share, it is much appreciated. Dear sallybea, These slippers are adorable, and you have provided such clear instructions that I am quite sure that even I could pull off a pair, perhaps for the granddaughters for Christmas!
Jodah I appreciate your taking the time to comment Jodah. Suzanne Day That sounds like a great idea - I wonder if you saw the little mice slipper tutorial I published last week? Johnny Parker Great Johnny, I hope you wife enjoys the tutorial.

DDE - Good to hear that you are doing well, you have a great week too. Thanks for the vote up - I really appreciate it Sally.
