Inspired by Spangler2’s moccasins from earlier this month, I set out to find a way to make some slippers. I don’t have sheets of leather to use, but I do have a large moth-eaten wool cape that I felted a few years ago since it was too holey to use as a garment any more.
In full disclosure, this project did not turn out well in person. This photo somehow blurred out most of the choppiness and bad stitching (which is why I selected it rather than some of the other ones that are truer). Plus, the ribbon embellishment is testament to one of my favorite sayings: “It’s not a mistake it’s a design element”. I’m calling this one a learning experience as I’ve never tried making anything shoe-like before.
