the helpful dachshund

I had the great idea to use my waterproof heating pad to accelerate the drying of some felted slippers I made made for Edda.


But there is one member of our family that cannot leave a warm heating pad alone.

He approaches…


And this is his disappointed “you mean I’m not allowed to sleep on it?” face.


Poor Oliver.

The slippers are from the pattern “Crocheted Felt Slippers for Children #CH-32” from Fiber trends. I’m in the process of sewing some handmade leather soles on them so she can wear them. Photos of that to come (I hope.) The pink yarn that is threaded through the holes in the top of the slipper is temporary; it was only there to keep the holes from closing up during felting. It has since been replaced by cute, crocheted ties in matching wool yarn.

Unrelated note: today is my due date! But no baby has arrived yet… I feel like it will be soon, but then what does that mean?


About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.
