Felted Slippers

I've made 2 pairs of these felted slippers and I love them! They're so warm and comfy.

I took an online class @ Craftsy with Betz White. They're very easy to make and stitch up quick.
You 'felt' old wool sweaters by washing them in hot water & soap. They become dense and don't ravel.
The ribbing on the bottom edge of the sweater is used for the cuff on the slippers.

On the striped pair I used jiffy grip on the soles. I embellished them with scraps left from the sweater.

I need to hit the thrift stores for more sweaters!


  1. Wow they look fantastic, Job well done.

  2. Really like these, is there a pattern somewhere for them.?
    Thank you for any info

  3. You get the pattern when you take Betz White's online class at

  4. I am very curious about the online class. I have not taken anything on line like that. I see you really liked this pattern/idea. I like them too. How do you like the online class?

  5. The online class was great. It's a video that you are able to view whenever you want as many times as you want, ask questions (via a message)to the instructor, have acess to the pattern and work at your own pace.
    These slippers are very easy to make
