Hand Made Slippers

I went to a workshop today at Bilston Craft Gallery with 'Sammy the shoe-maker', learning how to make sheepskin slippers :)
It was a lush day - tiring as I don't normally use a hammer and nails, but a great experience.

And pictures from the workshop. I'd love to design some of my own to adapt the shape and work into the uppers before assembling them. I saved some pink suede remnants so might add a star or snowflake to the front with a single stitch.
