Re: How to Make Snuggly Slippers from Old Sweaters

I'm in the process of making these slippers right now and I'm finding that the heel of the slipper doesn't cup my heel as it should. To correct this I'm adding some darts (for lack of a better term) via the zigzag stitch to create that cup for the heel. I have one slipper sewn and I'd say it seems to be working, because it already feels more sturdy.

Thanks for this article, I'm a relatively new sewer and small project like this helps to build confidence.
