Cashmere Slippers

New slippers for Anna using an old cashmere sweater that Kim sent me.









She loves them.
So do I! I think I need some. I did my own thing for this pair, but I did find a tutorial here for you, if you are interested.
I used suede for the bottom that I had in my stash, but you could also use old jeans, or some felt.
A nice quick project for cold piggies!

They are adorable and what a great gift. Like silk for your feet that also keeps them super warm.
