Several months ago, I purchased a shoe pattern from Cheri @ Shoeology on Etsy, so I decided to finally try one of the patterns and make a pair of house shoes. Perfect!
I selected the Upcycled Vintage Shoe pattern. I had a couple of pieces of gray wool from an old pair of pants and some plaid flannel. With the weather getting a bit on the chilly side (at 7000 feet, fall settles in quickly), I wanted a pair of very cozy slippers.
Cheri's patterns are wonderful: well designed, great step-by-step directions, pictures, etc...
It took me less than two hours to make a pair of adorable slippers.
Here is the result:
I can't wait to make another pair: I have just the dark navy plaid wool that will make another great pair of house shoes!
PS: A nice break from making bags was just what I needed. I went back to my original project (the bag's closure) and here it is:
