Hello DIY lovers. Are you ready for some inspiring DIY projects? These DIY trendy ideas that we have selected for you for today are going to keep you warm during the entire winter. We have selected some DIY slippers ideas that you can try to stay warm this winter. Enjoy.
1. DIY Sweater Slippers
This is definitely one of the most creative and at the same time easy-to-do DIY slippers to keep you warm ever. For this project, you will need an old sweater and two pieces of 12″X 8″ felt (maybe larger if you have a really big foot). Once you get your slippers out of the old sweater your legs will never even feel cold again.
- First, trace your foot onto a manila folder. Create a foot-fitting shape.
- Cleanly cut out the created pattern.
- Trace the pattern onto the two pieces of the felt. Do it twice per piece of the felt because you will need two pieces for each slipper: one for the sole and the other for the midsole.
- Once you have done it, place the foot pattern onto the slipper. Draw the pattern over the sweater. Leave around 1” around each side of the pattern.
- Cut out! Repeat the same with the other foot.
- Using double-stick tape, stick the felt piece onto the sweater. Repeat on the backside.
- Use your sewing machine and some basic sewing skills to sew the parts together. Stitch all around. If you have no sewing machine you can hand-sew the pieces together.
Few more steps:
- Once you have prepared the sole, it is time for the upper part. Cut off each of the sleeves 5” from the bottom.
- Stitch the sleeve opening shut and round the other end. Your plug will look like an egg with a flattened bottom.
- Place the plug over top of the footbed with good sides together and tack stitch them at the point.
- Starting from the left side, move to the right and stitch all around, evenly distributing the excess material from the footbed as you go. Close the back by running two rows of stitches up the back about an inch apart. Then sew straight across the bottom to close the slit.
- Cut all around the bottom of the sweater to create the final part of the slippers. Create two pieces and then put a little stick of tape on each piece.
- Fold in half around the top edge of the slipper and tack stitch a few places to keep it from flipping up. You are done!

4. DIY: Love Your Soles Socks
Are you searching for the most romantic DIY socks ever? You will adore these heart shape designed socks forever. They are so easy to be done. All you will need are the following materials and much love. Here we go.
- A pair of thick warm socks
- Red felt
- Heart template
- Needle and thread
- Cut hearts out of the felt using the heart template. The best is to use white socks and red felt for the hearts.
- Once you have cut the hearts, all you need to do is to sew them onto the heels of the socks.
Extra tip: weave the needle in and out through the outside of the socks rather than pulling it all the way through the inside of the socks. This will save you time and nerves if you don’t really enjoy sewing that much.
Slip the socks on your feet and stay warm, cozy, and romantic. This is also a perfect DIY Valentine’s Day idea that you can try to make a pair of romantic socks for you and your partner. Personalized, DIY gifts are always a perfect idea to give to someone. So, keep these DIY slippers and DIY projects in mind. You may find them useful in the future.
