I know that Christmas was just last month but I am already thinking about gifts for next year. I think these would make fun and cozy gifts for Christmas. I plan on getting a head start on Christmas 2008 with these babies. Courtesy of Martha. ;)
Padding around the house in warm wool socks is a cozy comfort that can sometimes be slippery -- and socks' feet can get damp and dirty. For more solid footing, add soles.
Tools and Materials
Scrap of cardboard
No-Sew Slipper Socks How-To
1. Pull the socks onto your feet. Stand on a piece of cardboard, and trace both feet with a pencil; cut cardboard along lines. Remove socks. Use a sewing pencil to trace the templates on sueded fabric and fusible webbing, a material that bonds fabrics together; cut them out.
2. Slide a cardboard template into each sock, positioning it where you want to iron on new soles. Place fusible webbing between sueded fabric and sock's sole; iron according to webbing directions, and remove cardboard.
