these are recycled sweater slippers from sewing green. i love them so much more than i thought i would - they are made from an old yard sale sweater that i machine-felted. the only modification i made was to make the toe a little less pointy and elf-like.
they are so warm. i guess they should be if you're basically wrapping a wool sweater around your wool-socked feet.
and my favorite part is the striped denim fabric i used for the soles - i love how it looks with the taupe slippers. everything was stitched with contrasting red thread, but it only shows up in the close-up of the soles below.
to add to my repurposed clothing collection i made two "quick fix grocery bags" from this wonderful tutorial from the blog //Between the lines// (who last week received much deserved credit after good housekeeping originally posted this as an original tutorial of theirs. what?!)
