- Sew two soles together to create double thickness
- Change the pattern slightly and use a technique that produces a double thickness, and very sturdy sole, though very yarn hungry, or...
- A leather sole.
So currently, I have one sole cut out, with holes punched, so I can hook the sole to the bootie. I've used the super dooper E6000 glue to attach the sole, and add a bit extra attachment to the bootie.
The booties are 15cm long (heel to toe), and quite wide.
Please note, these booties are not vegan, as the yarn is a wool blend.
Mind bend? As I said, I'm not vegan, so yes I use wool, although I try to source ethical wools, where the animals are treated well, and also co-ops and fair trade yarns where the workers are paid a fair wage. As for the house philisophy, communal areas are vegan, so while I wouldn't run a wool felting workshop in the house, I do run crochet workshops using non wool yarns, and do have a range of vegan friendly yarns. My personal view is one of seeking balance.
