From WoolyBaby:

Want to be kind to the earth? Or maybe you want to tailor a special pair of slippers for yourself or as a gift? This pattern will help you turn old clothes into a unique pair of slippers! I developed these patterns myself and sold over 5000 pairs of slippers using my patterns. Now you can make this popular design yourself in just a couple of hours!

Style: low-topped slipper shoes (with or without leather heel and toe caps, as shown in photos)

Difficulty: This is a pattern of moderate difficulty for those with some sewing experience, however, this design is a bit easier than my high-topped "Slipper Socks".

US Women 6.5/ Kids 4.5, 9.0 inches (23 cm)
