Happy Wednesday everyone!
I am so excited!
My slipper resoling project that R-Chee mentioned in Monday's Post was a complete success!
If you remember, last year I made two pairs of prototype slippers before finding the perfect design for my favorite green slippers that I made.
Here are the links to the first two that I liked, but they needed better soles to be a bit warmer & sturdier in their design...
I just finished updating them to be warmer, more comfy and indoor/outdoor ready so that I can get the mail in them and follow R-Chee out to the backyard to play!
Here are the two pairs of slippers with their new soles made and ready to sew on!
I used my favorite Lion Brand Yarns:
After I sewed them on with my yarn needle to the existing soles I cut scrap pieces of leather and poked holes in them with an awl to lace through.
I decided to make just a few stitches in the center for a quick release & resew method for easy washing.
I also crocheted new tops for my first pair of slippers in the Amazing Yarn to make them warmer.
I found did not like all the holes on the top of the first design I made them in.
I just love how warm, comfy and indoor/outdoor ready they are now!
Now R-Chee and I are working on his retro rug hooking for his pug cave that I started last Fall.
We are almost done and will be able to show it to you soon.
...and I have another makeover project that I have started and will get to reveal in the coming weeks.
What FUN projects are you working on this Summer?
Have you planted a garden?
Please let us know and give us all the details!
We cannot wait to hear!
Melissa & R-Chee
