Patchouli 009

Patchouli 009
The one thing I was definite about making for her were these "Birkenstocks"! They are based on the original Birks - the Arizona.

Patchouli's Birks are made out of 100% wool felt in a dark brown. The insoles are tan wool felt. The silver buckles are made from two jump rings. They are merely decorative. Her birks do slide off her feet like clogs, though. She will stand unsupported in them.

You had me at the shoes! Is there some sort of stiffener in the sole?

LOL! Everyone loves Patchouli's Berkenstocks! I made them on a whim as it seemed like she would have shoes like these. I've never owned a pair myself, so I had to research them on the internet!

Patchouli's Berks are made entirely of wool felt. The soles are light tan felt on the inside and brown felt on the outsides. The uppers have tabs on the sides that are sandwiched in between the layers as I hand sewed them. I didn't need to stiffen them at all. The buckles are tiny silver jump rings that I bent into an oval shape and hand sewed to the felt.
