Blue Suede Shoes

I had a good laugh when I was taking a picture of these shoes. They are going to an exhibit, but the Felting Forum's monthly Challenge is Felt Us a Tune! At first I was thinking "Blue Suede Shoes", but then the back side said, "Wooly, Wooly".

The Exhibit is "All (W)rapped Up" at Gallery 107, Tri County Arts Council, Cobleskill, NY from March 2nd-March 31st 2007 All the exhibitors are from the
The Northeast Feltmakers Guild, with whom I got my start.

The shoes are indigo dyed Merino and Tencel, lasted over leather with leather soles. They have a decorative button and close with Velcro.
