2 Ways to Add Outdoor Soles for Crochet Shoes
STEPS TO ADD LEATHER OUTDOOR SOLES TO YOUR CROCHETED SLIPPERS
MATERIALS TO PREPARE
- Faux leather or your preferred material
- Leather punch
- Waxed thread (a blanket stitch will also do)
- Tapestry needle
Get the faux leather, suede, or any equivalent material of your choice, and cut an oval shape with the maximum measurement of about 4 inches long and 2 ¾ wide.
Cut your next oval with the length of 2 ¼ inches and width of ½ inches.
Before proceeding to the next step, trace the two ovals you cut, for preparation for the next slipper.
Using your leather punch, make evenly punched holes (where you will insert your thread) around the material with the distance of half an inch per hole.
Get the larger oval first and attach it to the bottom part of the slipper using a blanket stitch or a waxed thread.
Position the smaller oval on the heel of the slipper and attach it, the way you did with the larger oval while still using a blanket stitch or a waxed thread.
And you are done! These steps are so easy that you do not have to read them twice. On top of that, you can surely create plenty of pairs in just a day!
