Upcycled felt slippers

Upcycled Sweater Slipper Video Tutorial

In Tutorials, Whimsy by Nadine1 Comment


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!
