Refreshed Slippers

My favorite slippers were looking quite raggedy indeed...



So I freshened them up with a little chocolate colored felt, some jet black beads and a fancy new rhinestone collar! I think I've added a few more wears to this little pair.

Have you gussied anything lately?

P.S) Since you asked: These slippers were purchased on sale at Anthropologie three years ago. I also had a pair in pink featuring a stretching siamese cat, but I didn't think to revive those. I just tossed 'em. (Boo!) An easy way to create your own without crocheting would be to buy a pair of plain slipper socks (I often see them on sale at Target, or you could snatch up a pair on Etsy) and add your own felt embellishments. Send us a photo if you attempt a pair. We'd love to see your handywork!

I love these slippers!!! I need to make a pair of these. Do you have a pattern/shop link?

What a clever embellishment - I had to do a double take to see that it was over both shoes! ha! I think you should make new ones like this and not wait till they get old next time.

So glad y'all liked 'em! These slippers were from Anthropologie from three years ago. I also had a pair in pink featuring a stretching siamese cat, but I didn't think to revive those. I just tossed 'em. An easy way to create your own without crocheting would be to buy a pair of plain slipper socks (I always see them on sale at Target)and add your own felt embellishments. Let me know how yours turn out!
