I heart Fiber Trends’ Felt Clogs.
You know you have a useful item when you wear it out, reluctantly take it off in order to repair it, and immediately put it back on again.
Due to some irresponsible usage (wearing them outside to grab sprigs of herbs, etc.), after two winters’ use the outer sole of my clogs wore OUT. Sad. The uppers are still fine, so I wasn’t about to retire them. I heard of people knitting new soles and sewing them on, so that’s what I did.
My clog. So warm.
The hole. Awful.
I decided to sew them on and then re-felt afterwards (rather than felting the soles by themselves) to help them marry the body of the clogs. I had to take a few little tucks so the large, unfelted soles would fit the felted clogs.
