SEW Hip! Slouchy Slippers (by Caroline Hoff, issue 20) have been made…
The SEW Hip! pattern is advertised as a beginner’s pattern, and I wholeheartedly agree.
The Slouchy Slippers are
easy to make.
If you are short on Christmas gift ideas and you fancy ‘making’ your loved ones a present, then this pattern is for you.
Being Spring ‘down under’ I adapted the pattern a little…
Instead of using fleece on the inside of my Slouchy’s, I went for Osnaburgh Cotton; it’s lightweight and works well with every colour imaginable.
plus I have loads of it
…(for some reason).
Of course, being Spring doesn’t alter the fact that I need non-slip fabric
for the underside of my slippers.
Non-slip fabric is something I have never had to buy before…
and judging by the look on the face of the assistant at my local ‘you want it, we’ve got it’ store, neither has anyone else in Sydney.
how much a blank look can convey.
Not being one to give up at the first hurdle, I scuttled off to find something I could use instead.
Incredibly over near the curtain department, I found some weird rubber doily tablerunners.
you read right…
RUBBER DOILY TABLERUNNERS!!
Hmmm… Sydneysiders don’t have any need for Non-Slip fabric, but they have for rubber doily tablerunners…REALLY?!
Anyway, I cut some of the doily out & hand sewed it to the soles. Job done.
So here they are, my version of the
SEW Hip! Slouchy Slippers.
