DIY Cashmere Insoles

So you've crocheted yourself a lovely pair of slippers.  Now you may want to make them over the top comfy and create your own cashmere insoles. So let's get started!

Step 1: Get a cashmere sweater, preferably one that matches your slippers' color scheme.  I grab mine at Goodwill and Salvation Army thrift stores sometimes for as little as $3 each.  When thrifting, don't worry about small stains or holes, this just means a better price!

Step 2: Throw your sweater in the washer and dryer.  Make sure you add additional clothing to the wash, run the wash with hot water, and on a heavy duty setting.

Step 3:  Set your slippers on top of a piece of your sweater and trace around them with a marker.

Step 4: Cut out your insoles.

Step 5:  Spray a little fabric adhesive on the bottom of the insoles and carefully slide them in  your slippers.  I start at the heel and roll the insole up to the toe.

Step 6: Sit back, relax and enjoy your supremely comfy slippers!
