felt shoes

these are made from 100% needle felted wool.  You can see the needle marks on the right shoe.  they are about 1/4 inch thick and very sturdy.  The problem is:  the piece of felt is not uniform in thickness.
Some spots are very thin ( you can almost see throught them).  so it is not satisfactory for making clothes.  I believe I could make some slippers but don't know if they would stretch out and loose their integrity, so they would not hold there shape.   I'll keep you posted as to the results.  (But they are cute!)
