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.
