These viking shoes would make kick-a slippers, I think. I've never tried to make shoes of any sort, though. Do you think I could make them using heavy felt instead of leather? I have no leather working tools and it seems intimidating. Also I just want them as house shoes.

Felt might stretch or tear in a way good leather would not. But then again, leather can stretch and tear too.
I suppose you could make house slippers with felt using that pattern, but it would not be much more difficult to make them in leather. A bit more expensive though.
