No-Sew Slipper Socks How-To

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.


What You'll Need


  • Thick socks (Hanna Andersson Camp Socks)
  • Sueded fabric (The Fabric Trade Olive Green Premium Faux Suede Fabric)
  • Fusible webbing (Heat 'n' Bond Soft Stretch Fusible Web Adhesive)
  • Scrap of cardboard
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Sewing pencil
  • Iron

    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.

    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.
