I remember checking this issue out of the library and wishing I could steal it just for the slippers. A few months ago I found the same issue at a thrift store. I am definitely going to have to try these.

Those are adorable. I hope my library has Threads going back that far. I buy my little girl chinese brocade slippers when I can find them. She would be crazy about these.

Weldbond is "Universal Space Age Adhesive" and "bonds most anything". The disadvantage is that it takes longer to dry, but its lack of noxious odor and non-toxicity make it worth it in my book. It is available at hardware stores. And the slippers are comfortable - I tried them on before I sent them and my Grandma wears them all the time.

I love the slippers. Great color. I'm curious as to whether or not they are very comfortable.

Really cute! I've been wanting to make slippers from this article, but like you, I couldn't find 1/4" wool felt. Thanks for the tip about using craft felt! I do have one question though, can you please tell me what "Weldbond" is? (Can I get it at a craft store or a Home Depot?) Thanks!
