Every couple of years, my slippers start to fall apart and I need to make a new pair. It’s a pretty quick project, especially compared to the countless hours I used to spend trying to find an acceptable pair of slippers to buy. This year, I made more of a ballet-slipper style, which is a departure from slippers I’ve made in the past. I made the pattern by tracing my foot and guesstimating.
They are made from home dec velvet, lined in cashmere, insoles from repurposed old cashmere socks, elastic behind the heel, leather outsoles from a thrifted leather jacket.
