My hubby asked me to make him a new pair of slippers, seeing as how it is now freezing in our new house which has tiled floors and he wore a hole in his old pair (sliding accross our old wood floors).
I searched the web on how to make upcycled felt slippers, cause I’m green like that and. I have a box full of old felted sweaters. I found this tutorial and made a video tutorial on how to make them, with a few mods.
Here is a list of materials required:
- a wool sweater that has been felted
- strong thread/cord (I used hemp)
- a darning needle
- a pair of scissors
- a paper cut out of the foot to be slippered
- 2 suede cut outs of said feet
- strong thread
- leather needle
*The last 3 are optional if you would like to have a suede sole on your slippers.
This is my first video tutorial, which my hubby edited. I hope you like it and it helps to keep your family’s feet cosy!
