Everyday I am crafting new slippers! This week I will post photos of new design styles. You can begin to think about what look you might want for your slippers. One slipper I am working on right now is Silk Overlay.
Silk overlay is something I have been thinking about for a long time. Silk overlay is my dream slipper! Silk can be hand painted by artisans or printed and can offer a huge range of illustrations and designs. Tropical leaves, roses, rainbows, sunsets, cats, toucans, ocean waves, mermaids, unicorns, galaxy, iridescent, abstract, the slipper dream is real.
Silk can easily be blended with Merino wool fibre for a luxurious look. Final outcome of the silk print varies greatly once fully felted, creating a surprising and unique design.
For this campaign, I plan to purchase several silk prints for the silk overlay options.
This floral sample is what I am working on right now! How will it turn out? I will be posting the fished slipper by the end of the week.
