Re: How to Make Snuggly Slippers from Old Sweaters

I love this idea for old sweaters. For longer wear, I would strongly suggest felting the sweaters first by washing in hot water with jeans (something that really creates agitation)and some soap. Don't use mohair--I think that might result in too slippery an end product. Also, I love the idea of adding darts to the heel, that would make the slippers better wearing.

Fabulous idea and a great recycling project. I'll have to head to the thrift store for knitted sweaters for this one!!
