Recycled Wool Longies and Slippers

I came into a few great old wool sweaters recently that were unwearable because they had already been partially felted in the wash.  So I set about to do something I’ve been wanting to try for a long time- I made some wool longies for Jude!

I also decided to make some warm wool slippers to match the first pair of woolies.  I used the Stardust Shoes pattern that I linked to a long time ago.  Man, they sure are warm with two layers of wool all over!  I also used white puff paint to make them non-slip on the bottom.

I still have a lot of leftover wool… what else can I make? 😀

  1. so fun! I’m going to try this. I’ve been making beanies out of old sweaters to sell for our adoption and I have a LOT of donated sweaters so I was thinking of branching out to other projects. 🙂
