i wasnt really sure where else to put this, but clothing seemed close enough. i almost threw my favorite slippers out because the bottoms were worn out from wearing them so much. and then suddenly i realized i could fix them! this is my first time posting pics so sorry if i mess up...

here's what it looked like before


and this is after i replaced the fabric

That's so cool that you could resurrect your slippers.  And I LOVE that black check fabric too.  (I keep yards and yards of that fabric on hand for various projects.)

Well done!  You get to keep your snugglies!

I have those slippers! I love them. What you've done is great! Are they skid-proof?

thanks for the compliments everyone! my mom bought me a whole bunch of this fabric for christmas and i finally decided to pull it out. now everything i'm making is covered in this checkered pattern. the bottoms aren't skid proof, but they're not that slippery so it's alright. as long as i don't run around throughout my house too much i'm sure i'll be fine Wink
