You will learn to trace and measure your own feet to sew the best fitting slippers you have ever worn!
You will have the option to sew by hand or use a sewing machine (and you can bring your own machine, or use one of ours). The seams will be bulky, but felt is easy to push a needle through, so most sewing machines will handle it fine. We will provide wool felt for the soles, but the uppers can be anything you like, or you can choose from the selection we’ll have available during class.
Once you know the basics, you will be able to trace anyone’s feet and make them some comfy slippers as well… and if you are adventurous, shoe soling rubber is available online, and you could make your comfy slippers into comfy shoes!
Instruction, and by the end of class, you’ll have a pair of slippers made just for you! You’ll also learn how to make more.
No experience necessary
Best for Ages
18 and up
You should bring…
Bring a couple dozen pins, a sharp scissors, and if you want, bring your own sweater material (felted or not) that will be cut up to make the slippers.
