Some time ago I reading Stitch magazine I came across a pattern by Annette Emms for making fairy slippers. They enchanted me and I've been wanting to make a pair ever since. This month my friend Heather who lives in Australia and I have chosen this pattern as our monthly challenge.
The slippers are about 3" long and made of dupioni silk with a felt backing and machine embroidered. I've embellished this pair with cotton embroidery, beads and pearls and metallic threads. I'll be posting later more slippers that I've made which I have used silk ribbon embroidery to embellish.
The hard part of all this stitching is choosing which pair to send off to Australia.
