I love them. I wished I had some felted wool sweaters to make some. I bet they are wonderful.

Do any of your slippers have the little sticky dots or wiggly lines so they are safe on hard floors? I know in another life and other times, I would buy fabric with the grippy "stuff" for the soles of slippers. I haven't watched the whole video yet. Perhaps it is mentioned there.

Perfect idea to repurpose sweaters and to keep our toes toasty on cold Michigan days and nights.

These ones don't have grippies, but she does have a seperate video on how to add them to your socks.

I don't think the seam allowances are included in the patterns, because they're sizing seems off, so the next pair I'm adding seam allowances when I cut it, to see if that makes a difference. My mom usually wears a wide 7, and I made a men's 13 and it was still too snug, so I'm going to try again, but include seam allowances in.
