Can you tell me what sizes are included when I order the pattern? I'm wanting to make a women's size 6-7 & 8-9 as well as men's size 7-8 & 9-10. Thanks so much!
This PDF pattern includes womens sizes 2-3, or child size 13, women's 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11. Mens sizes 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10. Thanks for your interest. Let me know if you have further questions.Jan
What kind of fabric is this? Fleece?
It is felted wool sweaters and the lining is fleece.
I just love this pattern! I've made a bunch of these from wool sweaters I had cut up and prepped for another project that didn't work so well, so I was very happy to find a use for the 'boiled' wool... everyone loves them! and they are really nice and warm.
Sizes run small. Agree with Momv ... attach cuff prior to assembling the top and bottom ... much easer to work with.
They look felted. What is the fabric used in this pattern?
I purchased this pattern the other day and i have now made 6 pairs, i would like to make a couple suggestions for anyone interested in making this. I made it to the original specifications first and found it very challenging to sew on the cuff portions, I have just your everyday sewing machine pull the sleeve attachment on the base off. I decided to go without the pull tab and attached the cuff on the slipper upper before sewing the heel together. Also you can not really see the sole seam if you sew it without doing the hiding of the seam portion. You will see when you purchase the pattern. worth the purchase by the way. they are warm and comfy. If this doesn't make sense to you just ask me questions and i will try to clarify.... LOL
thanks for the tip. I will definitely try doing the cuff first. In reading the directions I wondered if that would be a challenge. You saved me some frustration. Did you wrap it all the way around first...or just one edge and then the back so the seam would go up through the cuff before "rolling"? (I hope that made sense????)
would it be difficult to use leather for the sole? I am thinking of a suede leather jacket I have been hanging on to- hoping I can find a re-use for it... I think my machine will sew through this thin, malleable leather OK, but haven't a clue how bunchy the sole seam is, especially on the tighter corners... Is it thick, such as: Is there a lining for the inside of the slipper, and the upper itself, and the sole, or just the slipper sole and upper? I am SO wanting this pattern, if I can make the sole thicker than a wool sock.
A soft leather works great for the sole. Your suede jacket would be perfect. Here is a link to a blog post I wrote about someone using leather on the soles with my patter. http://youmakeitsimple.blogspot.com/2012/09/label-your-slippers-left-rigt.htmlThere is a sole lining for the slippers. You can use fleece for the lining or a thinner sweater, or use leather for the bottom and a thinner sweater piece or fleece for the lining. Just depends how thick you want your sole to be. I do prefer a little padding, so I like to use a thick felted sweater on the bottom.I hope this was helpful, please let me know if you have any further questions.Jan
What sizes are in this pattern?
It is all sizes, i purchased it, from one childs size, small 4-5 woman/6/7 mens to large 10-11.
so it also fits babies?
I guess I am not really certain of my interpretation of the term "one child size": Does this mean size ONE, child? or One of the childrens' sizes... Are babies counted as a child in sizing? --Oh, I don't suppose it matters, either way- I am fairly certain this pattern's sizing would be rather easy to alter on one's own.
Sorry I am just now seeing this post. The child size ONE is like 1. or comparable to size 13. I should reword that.I do have the same pattern available for infants and smaller children.Sorry about the confusion.
