The pattern Doris uses is the one published in Stitch magazine, No. 50 - the "Fairy Slippers" article by Annette Emms http://www.embroiderersguild.org.uk/stitch/backissues/index50.html
Who could resist trying to make a pair? Everyone present at the meeting experimented and prepared some layered fabric , so expect all sorts of fabulous shoes creations next meeting. Some just couldn't wait until the Dollies meeting... here are some other interpretations

It was a very happy and lively meeting, with such beautiful show and tell pieces. There was lots of discussion about the upcoming Barbara Willis workshop, with everyone excited about making "Danielle". Remember to prepare your little surprise for the Christmas in July combined birthday party in Sydney. Bring a finished item to the June meeting and we will also make another at the June Newcastle meeting, so there will be enough for everyone. If you were not there to receive the pattern, please contact Wilma for the instructions. Sorry, it can't be posted here as it is a surprise!
See you in Sydney on 23rd May, and in June -20th in Newcastle and 27th in Sydney .
Best wishes, Wilma
