My huge pussycat furry slippers are falling to bits. After getting them out every winter and repairing the soles with sticky tape, I think it's time to bin them. Sad I know but they don't keep my feet warm any more with ruddy great holes in them. I feel a little bit sentimental about letting them go because they were a gift from my sister. She bought herself a pair at the same time, which were ditched a long time ago, whereas I tried to keep mine going for as long as I could.
Anyway, today my feet were cold so I need to find something else to wear in the house. I'm too mean to buy any new slippers, so I had a look at the footwear I already have. I bought a soft pair of boots from a charity shop in the summer for £2.50. They are clean because I've only worn them a few times going to town, and they are so so comfy. They are also big enough to accommodate my knee high thick socks.
I don't like walking around the house with outdoor shoes and boots on, it wears the carpet out and scratches the vinyl floor covering in the kitchen. I can't afford to replace them, they have to last. So then I had an idea, why not make some soft soles which can be attached to the bottoms of the boots. I found a carpet offcut and drew around them.
There you go, a soft sole which will do no damage to the floor, and keep my feet warm at the same time.
