Do you have a passion for making things entirely by hand or appreciate it in other people? In my teens and twenties, I got a thrill out of being my own mechanic on my old '75 Mustang. Yep, I've changed a few water pumps and brake pads. I have sewn every stitch of handmade rag dolls with a needle and thread (no machine stitching), and I prefer to cook from scratch. Isn't it much more rewarding to gather family and friends to put in fence posts, and raise barns? So naturally for me, prepping the fleece, learning to spin, and then making things from the alpacas' luscious fiber is my idea of happiness! -Kaylen

The Cutest Little Slipper

I found another use for the last little bit of kool-aid dyed fiber...


It was just enough for the final touch to these sweet Sorrento Slippers.

The entire slipper is made from Sabrina's fleece.  I used a darker area of the prime blanket for the sole  and a lighter part for the top.  

I am getting a lot of requests for adult sizes, so that is on my hot list!  Would you wear them in spring?

Happy Fiber Friday!
