slipper socks...from old blankets...


now i'm not sure if these are absurdly cute...or just absurd...but i feel sure you'll let me know!!! lol

...they are certainly absurdly easy...simply chop up an old felted wool blanket with sharp sewing scissors...and add blanket stitch in wool all around the edges to join and to decorate...

...and of course you can make them in whatever size you need...mine are a size 10 and size 4!! :0)
i'm not sure whether or not to embellish these toasty toe~warmers...i sort of like the simplicity...but then i sort of like embellishing...what do you think?

You don't need to go out in them, unless they are wellie liners. They do look cosy, perfect for the cold :)

I think they look fantastic, and definitely cosy. If it was me making them (which I probably won't cos I'm rubbish at sewing) I would probably go a bit mad with embellishing!
Thanks for your congrats comment on my blog, very much appreciated :D

They definitely need the FULL TREATMENT! Go on ... you know you want to!

Ooo...I love them Alix...very warm and sure to keep Jack Frost away! *Ü* I am allergic to the cold, so they would be very comfortable in my boots. Depending if you would wear them in boots, then, no embellishments but if you wear them around the house, sure, put some little crochet flowers or seasonal embellies on them. *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

I'm looking at these as the snow is falling outside the window - they look so cosy!

These would be brill as wellie warmers, wish i had thought to make some before buying Hunter ones at £14 a pair.
