A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and science.
~~Albert Einstein

Another interesting experiment to try with more complicated moebius knitting is machine-fulling or milling/wet-felting ordinary color wash (which I do not recommend for this extra dense fabric.) I sure had my reservation going into making it. So did my 12-year-old daughter, who critiqued everything there were about Cat Bordhi’s ingenious design of these felted, fringed boots with Moebius bootstraps! (Why are there handles? Why are they twisted?) I finally had to put my foot down and told her to make her own if she is dissatisfied.

Before and After–can you picture this totally different look!
Leather soles will be sewn on after they are dried. Felting custom-fit wear requires a lot more patience, precision, balance, and shaping. Don’t think you can walk away for a second…big surprises are installed for you unexpectedly if you dare. It took a few one-minute checks to get these just right for a 12-year-old perfectionist. Now that they are physically felted and molded to her feet…she is on Cloud 9.

Movin’ on…up next will be a gala dress for her upcoming Bach Musical competition/performance in a couple of weeks. Clock is ticking fast.

Happy creating!
