Slippers FO

Last week you saw a photo of the first finished sock that I wanted to turn into slippers.  And this week the slippers are done!  I just finished them this afternoon and ran outside to get photos before I lost the light.

These are worsted weight socks that I’ve sewn on to slipper soles.  Here are the finished socks, some felt inserts that I bought a while back, and the slipper soles that I bought in December.

I set the felt inserts into the soles, which are suede on the bottom and have a layer of foam on top.

Then I put the socks on, set my feet into the soles, and set about sewing them on while I was wearing the socks.  This seemed the only way to get a nice fit.  The socks fit nice and snug, so I had to fit the soles around them.

And here they are finished! I love them so much already that the old ones quickly went into the trash.

    Great idea to sew the soles on while wearing the socks — using a blunt neede, of course!

    Love them, although the colour would keep me wide awake 🙂
    So nice to finally meet you at Tori’s workshop at the Brei- en Haakdagen.
