Hi! I'm coming to this board from the knitting board in search of some sewing help!...
I am sewing some loopholes (for laces) on to slippers that I've made, and I was wondering if anyone knew of an easier way to do this! I'm currently hand stitching the pieces on, but it takes forever! It's almost like I need a thread stapler or something like that... I don't know if those even exist, lol! Because I knit and felt the slippers, I can't add the pieces on beforehand so I'm stuck adding them after the felting process. I can't glue them on because the 1. the fuzziness of the slipper makes the glue have trouble adhering, 2. the slipper stretches when you wear it 3. people are generally hard on shoes, and I'm afraid the glue will come off.
Here's a picture of a completed slipper:http://www.flickr.com/photos/iheartthatdance/2278279176/in/set-72157603797046353/
I just need to find a better way to attach those loopholes!!
Any help or other suggestions would be appreciated!!
