I thought these green slippers were the same ones I repaired a couple of years ago. But they are not. These are obviously a more muted green and the variegated colors of the yarn aren’t in the same places.
It doesn’t really matter though I would like to know how long these last for me. I must be hard on my slippers as I seem to wear them out fairly often. I can tell that these have been re
Whatever. They are in the trash. Gone for good.
My new red multicolored seamless slippers…
My slippers are still in relatively good shape. I wear them all the time, even outside sometimes! Since you taught me how to repair th bottoms, I’m pretty sure they have a lot of life left in them!
Are the soles felted wool or just felt? Always looking for ways to keep slippers around longer.
The soles are from “replacement carpeting” for cars and trucks. I bought a roll of it specifically for this purpose from Wal-Mart when I used up the leftovers from putting in carpet in my husband’s truck several years ago. It’s like felt and easy to cut with regular scissors. I lost the label from the roll so I can’t tell you the brand. The Wal-Mart in my area doesn’t sell it any more. I did find something similar from Online Fabric Store. Here’s the link.
I used to take several layers of denim (from wore out jeans) and machine quilt soles before I found this stuff.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
