Fresh Fall slippers in all their glory! Easy on-&-off! Comfy, cozy! This pair is my trial run of a pattern from a Japanese craft book called "Room Shoes". Since they are a prototype and not "fancy", I dug through my scrap bag for all the materials. As usual, the scrapped-together look is probably more interesting than if I'd designed a look using "special" fabrics. The outsides are a thick, golden wool knit originally scored at a thrift store, since made into a curtain, and for the past years riding around in my stash boxes. They're lined with a fine-wale, soft, burgundy corduroy. I used a scrap of felted blue wool blanket to line the insoles. As usual with new slippers, I love them! Since I don't read Japanese, once I traced out the pattern, I just kinda made up the sewing-together. It looks like there are some interesting/helpful techniques in the instructions, but I couldn't quite decipher them. I like how these slippers turned out, and I'll be fooling around with some other versions from this book in the future. It looks like the sewing bug's finally returned to the studio. This is becoming a comfy, cuddly, wool wrap- hoodie. Nothing like a Fall nip in the air to inspire cozy-makin's!
