No-Sew Slipper Socks

Padding around the house in warm wool socks is a cozy comfort that can sometimes be slippery—and socks' feet can get damp and dirty. For more solid footing, add soles.

materials

  • Sueded fabric (The Fabric Trade Olive Green Premium Faux Suede Fabric, $12.70 per yd., etsy.com)

  • Fusible webbing (Heat 'n' Bond Soft Stretch Fusible Web Adhesive, $6, michaels.com)

  • Scrap of cardboard

  • Pencil

  • Scissors

  • Sewing pencil

steps

  1. Pull the socks onto your feet. Stand on a piece of cardboard, and trace both feet with a pencil; cut cardboard along lines. Remove socks. Use a sewing pencil to trace the templates on sueded fabric and fusible webbing, a material that bonds fabrics together; cut them out.

  2. Slide a cardboard template into each sock, positioning it where you want to iron on new soles. Place fusible webbing between sueded fabric and sock's sole; iron according to webbing directions, and remove cardboard.
