In the mail

I sent the finished seamless slippers to my sister-in-law.

With any luck, she will have them on her feet tomorrow…

or Wednesday.

Several people have asked me about the soles.  I found some “replacement carpet” for cars and trucks at Wal-Mart several years ago (2003 perhaps) when we put some new carpet in Mr. Aitch’s truck.  It was easy to cut and hand sew so I tried it on the bottom of the slippers.  The texture is similar to a thick felt though this is polyester.  It’s good but does wear out.  I bought a roll for under $10 (can’t remember the brand name) just for this purpose but I haven’t seen it at our local store for a few years.  Layers of denim/old jeans, canvas or wool quilted together or even leather will also work as soles.
