Recycled Wool Longies and Slippers

I came into a few great old wool sweaters recently that were unwearable because they had already been partially felted in the wash.  So I set about to do something I've been wanting to try for a long time- I made some wool longies for Jude!

I also decided to make some warm wool slippers to match the first pair of woolies.  I used the Stardust Shoes pattern that I linked to a long time ago.  Man, they sure are warm with two layers of wool all over!  I also used white puff paint to make them non-slip on the bottom.

I still have a lot of leftover wool... what else can I make? :D


  1. so fun! I'm going to try this. I've been making beanies out of old sweaters to sell for our adoption and I have a LOT of donated sweaters so I was thinking of branching out to other projects. :)

  2. Aw you have some really cute stuff in your etsy shop! We will be praying for your adoption. I hope that someone who comes across this page will help support you!
