Perfect Slippers

My sister gave me the perfect pair of slippers.

Within months, I had worn holes in the toes and heels. Where are you Stella & Murphy when I need you??

So I did not despair; I continued wearing them.
And they looked like this:



I cut off the threadbare fabric and tacked in a layer of thick felt:




I had a thin yoga sticky mat that was on clearance (thank you again, sister, who found it for me), but the mat is terribly slippery. Not Sticky is what the label shoulda said.
I re-purposed the mat as slipper cushion.




Then I found some old fleece to sew over the yoga mat, which was next to the thick fleece:


Here are my new soles:




And the perfect end-of-the-day moment...with the dog's approval...



Thank you again, Meredith, for the perfect slippers!  Stella & Murphy would be glad my feets are comfy, but they might have opinions about you shopping at Target...
