What materials did you use? thrift store sweater, baby minky fleece/suede fabric, and thread.

What are you most proud of? I made my own pattern as I couldn't find anything that I pictured in my mind. After 4 mock ups in ugly fabric I finally figured out how to put it together.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The lining is a fleece with faux suede backing. I could use the faux suede backing as the sole with the warm fleece inside. Since I also lined the top of the slipper it became to thick to machine sew the top to the bottom and it had to be hand sewn. I bent several needles in this project. Next time I will make this without the lining on the top part of the slipper.
