Saturday: Shop!—Handmade Christmas Project #5

November 15th, 2008 in Crafts, Saturday: Shopping!

Disclaimer: This is my second attempt at sewing, please follow Martha Stewart’s directions, not Vanessa’s. :)

Felt Slippers

As soon as I saw these Felt Slippers in a Martha Stewart magazine I knew I had to make them. They are simple to make and the fabric is cheap. Do mine look like Martha Stewart’s? No, but I am proud of myself all the same.

The instructionscall for a sewing machine but since I am pretty sure my very old sewing machine is possesed I thought I would sew them by hand. Plus there is something calming about sewing, making something with your hands, therapeutic almost.
