These sweet slippers are a terrific beginner felting project because the knitting is simple, yet the result is a durable pair of slippers that you can use in all seasons. These can be sized for newborns all the way through adult, and they’re lined with cotton-wrapped foam to make them soft and extra-cozy. The drawstring teaches you how to knit a channel that’s also functional, so the slippers are adjustable. In addition to the knitting instruction, Maggie will demonstrate the felting process at a washing machine, so you’re learning to felt alongside a master. Pattern included - a $6 value!

I have been a knitter for years. However, I learned three new techniques in just one class! Also, the instructor was very easy to listen to and very enjoyable

Since I don't have a top loading washer it would be nice to know if there is an alternative way to felt. Other than that this class was very well presented and I feel confident trying to make these slippers.
