A pair of room shoes I made from fabric scraps. Pattern is bought from ithinksew.com
I sewed a pair of thick felt soles so it would feel more like shoes instead of socks.

Also blogged here

cotton, batik, button

    I just looked at all your projects and I can’t decide what I like the most. You are a genius with a needle and thread! Love the shoes!

    Someone sent me a question by personal message, but I can’t find the particular person when using the Burdastyle search box, so I’m going to answer it here (I hope there will be easier way to answer personal message!)

    About the felt soles, I just sewed it as an addition to the shoe, so I didn’t make any modification. The felt soles that I used come pre-cut and already have holes all around for stitching, so it was very easy to attach them. I handstitched them using blanket stitch. Hope that helps!

    I wonder if they could be made in fleece ? I have an old fleece jacket that I can reuse ! They look so cosy !
