Interweave Felt 2007 Staff Project: House Slippers, Amanda Berka
When Linda wasn’t inspired by her store-bought Aran after it shrank in the wash, she offered it to me as inspiration. And inspired I was. I immediately saw potential in the rich texture, but the extreme thickness and little yardage didn’t leave a whole lot of possibilities. After seeing some felt insoles created by Carol H. Rhoades for the Spring 2007 issue of Spin-Off, I decided the thick sweater would be perfect for soles—and the rest of a slipper for that matter.
