Info on felting and baby booties for November 2016

The November 2016 meeting will have a hands-on session making some baby booties from felted knitting.

In September, Margaret showed us how to choose yarn suitable for felting and talked about the felting process.

Tricia made some notes that you can view or download:  felting-notes-sept-2016

Margaret sent the instructions for  construction the booties and it contains a link to the template: nov-2016-feltbabybootee

Please create some  felted fabric if you can from a wool yarn, make it big enough for 2 soles and 2 uppers to make a pair.

If you cannot manage this there will be some felt available.  Bring a sewing kit with a darning needle that will take thin yarn so you can blanket stitch around the edge of the booties.
