Craft Fiction Workshop #3 Slippers and Salve

The 3rd Craft Fiction workshop was a blast! We made slippers from old blankets and felted sweaters and our own salve with beeswax, olive oil and essential oils. I will post some photos from the workshop
First we traced our feet to make patterns

Then we made patterns for the insoles

We used our patterns to mark the slippers on the wool

after we cut them out we marked the holes for the laces

and finished them up!

Here we are making salve

Next Class we are dying with tea and created dyed sand projects. Hope to see you there!
