I've been promising pics for a week or so and here they are - my first batch of new Blanket Boots!
After a squillion trial pairs (you can see the making of them here) these are some of the first to leave the studio.
I love them so much!
Warm and cosy, flexible, fulled lined, leather soles with thick a lovely thick felted wool insole and of course featuring some of my favourite embroidery designs. Oh and some gentle elastic to keep them snugly onto active feet.
With the days getting cooler I have started donning my slippers too. Normally they are pulled on late afternoon before I start cooking dinner as the tiles in the kitchen are quite chilly underfoot. My poor slippers, however, are in a rather sorry state so sometime soon I hope to have a play with some ladies size slippers. Up until now I have only made clothing in children's sizes but receive constant requests for adult sizes so perhaps this might be the beginning of something new?
I'm not sure how long I will be making these boots for, as working on my new pattern designs will be taking much of my time for the remainder of the year. So if you fancy a pair, now is a good time to drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as I am taking orders for a limited number over the next month or so. They go from newborn to about age 8.
You can take a closer look at the bumble bee, dandelion and flower ones here and here. They make me smile just looking at them :)
