Not So Ruby Slippers

This was a super fast knitting project.  Shiraz Slipper pattern from Everyday Finery by Mel Clark.  Knit up in one skein of Cascade 220, lined with a fabric scrap from stash and padded with leather scraps.  Very quick and fun.  I have never been a fan of felting but this project turned out exactly the right size and texture.  I hand felted them rather than use the washing machine and was much happier with the result.  (I snuck into Marshalls' shoe department for the pictures.)
