Room shoes for me, with upcycled fabric – exterior from my old short pants, and the lining from my old shirt. This cotton lining appears very often in my studio!

      Thank you! Yes, I enjoyed upcycling a lot.
      For the sole, I used a slip-proof mat, or sheet, to be used between wooden floor and a carpet. I found it DIY shop and it works very well!!

      Thank you!!
      In fact, I had to do a little thing to finish this product, but I enjoyed it.
      The pattern is from a Japanese design book, but I found a similar design at I believe it will help you with detailed instruction. Hope this will help you.
