Felted Seam Repair
Anyone know how to repair the outer sole seam on the Fiber Trend Felted Clogs after they have been felted? Evidently I didn't secure the seam very well in the beginning and it is pulling apart. Help please.

Melissa

I would just sew it with the yarn I used in the first place.

Needle felting would be an option, too.

Or hand-felting just that little bit.

I've had this happen too - I think I get so impatient that I'm finished with the clog that I do a bad seaming job! I would sew it up with the yarn you used and refelt that area. If they're already down to the right size, then I would handfelt.

Thanks so much everyone. I love this forum. I have to have my "fix" a couple of times a day or I have withdrawals (sp?). I read this before I read my email. I have learned so much from all of you. Thanks again.
