Mukluks for Betsy...
The pattern was pretty straight forward. I used one of Hubby's old suit jackets for the wool exterior and lined them with wool-blend felt. They are sure to keep her toes and legs warm this winter. I want to make a pair for Mary too, but the pattern I have looks too small. Maybe they have a larger one or perhaps I can fudge the pattern a wee bit. I'm not so confident in that, but you never know until you try.
I found the best wool plaid in green, black, gray, and red at The Bakery yesterday for just $6.95 a yard. I want to make some throws for the bedrooms since it's extra-wide. It would make some adorable mucklucks too! I'm still chugging along on my sewing machine to finish a couple more Christmas gifts and I still have baking yet to do. Plenty of time....two and a half days!
