I’m not really having the best luck with some of my buys at the moment!
You may have read about my broken boots, and now we have broken slippers…! Disaster!
I have been banging on about slippers since the start of My Make Do and Mend Year (warm feet are so important!). I (very selfishly!) made myself a pair of slippers, and I am planning to make the rest of the family a pair each for Christmas (lucky devils..) but in the meantime, the Smalls were getting cold feet, so when I saw these in a charity shop, I snapped them up.
They were just the right size for SmallSmall and in good condition, and only £1.50! Happy Days. Or so I thought.
They quite quickly started falling off. A lot. Accompanied by a very sweet “Uh-oh” from SmallSmall to alert us to the fact.
We established that this was because the velcro had lost it’s stick. Hubby asked if I could add some more velcro, but I was
feeling lazy tired, and wasn’t sure if we had any, and couldn’t be bothered to look wasn’t sure where it would be if we did have some, so I suggested that we use jeans stud poppers instead. A genius move on my behalf, as not only did I know we had some, AND where they were, but as the installing of them involves a hammer, this is clearly a job for the Lovely Hubby!
So, this is what we ended up with
This worked very well for about 24 hours, until this happened
In the words of SmallSmall “Uh-oh”.
The Lovely Hubby is going to attempt to fix this. Not sure how. Will keep you posted.
So not such a great buy after all.
And don’t even get me started on the lining inside….
