SEW Hip! Slouchy Slippers...completed!

Joel Dewberry Fabric Button

SEW Hip! Slouchy Slippers (issue 20) have been made...

The SEW Hip! pattern is advertised as a beginner's pattern, and I wholeheartedly agree.

The Slouchy Slippers are  


easy to make.

If you are short on Christmas gift ideas and you fancy 'making' your loved ones a present, then this pattern is for you.

Joel Dewberry Fabric & Pin


Being Spring 'down under' I adapted the pattern a little...

Instead of using fleece on the inside of my Slouchy's, I went for Osnaburgh Cotton; it's lightweight and works well with every colour imaginable.


plus I have loads of it 

...(for some reason).


Of course, being Spring doesn't alter the fact that I need non-slip fabric

for the underside of my slippers.

Pin & Rubber Doily



Non-slip fabric is something I have never had to buy before...


and judging by the look on the face of the assistant at my local 'you want it, we've got it' store, neither has anyone else in Sydney.


It's interesting

how much a blank look can convey.

 Not being one to give up at the first hurdle, I scuttled off to find something I could use instead.

Joel Dewberry Fabric & Rubber Doily

Incredibly over near the curtain department, I found some weird rubber doily tablerunners.


you read right...



Hmmm... Sydneysiders don't have any need for Non-Slip fabric, but they have for rubber doily tablerunners...REALLY?!

Anyway, I cut some of the doily out & hand sewed it to the soles. Job done.
