My husband was going to go out and buy some cheap poor quality slippers to keep his feet warm for winter. I had offered to buy him some lovely sheep-skin ones but he scoffed at me.
So I decided that I should make him some out of a nice old grey blanket that I have in the cupboard awaiting some useful conversion. I also used and old soft black jumper that had been shrunk in the wash ( not on purpose) and wouldn't even fit my 8 year old.
The sole's have 3 layers of blanket and one of felt and the tops have one blanket and one felt layer. I also added a velcro flap to do them up to keep them nice and snug. I thought the cut outs looked rather good on this table top.
I sewed them by machine.
and blanket stitched over the top. Not very neatly but I am quite partial to the effect.
And they do fulfill their task of keeping his feet warm, and he likes them.
