ReStyle #2 - Corduroy Flats

Before:
Restyle Corduroy

...and After!
Corduroy Shoes 005
I'm pretty proud of myself. They are so comfy and are almost perfect. Except they are too small. This is the second pair of slippers/flats that I've made, and the first pair was small, too. You would think I would learn my lesson.
The outer is corduroy recycled from that dress above, the lining is some brown cotton scraps I had left over from an old project, and the insoles and outsoles are from an old pair of jeans.
Anyway, I plan on making more. I want to perfect them and have a closet full of handmade flats! I also am trying to think of a way to add soles.

I'll show you the first pair that I made sometime soon. :)

  1. I was not expecting that! They're really sweet. Be great to make some out of felted sweaters, tweed jackets or velvet too.
