Inbetweeners - Slippery Business

Liz says, "well they're not exactly Sarah's fabulous shoes but I'm quite pleased with my first pair of slippers for Steve's Valentine's present. There's a lady in Rastrick called Amanda who has set up a new business called "Joes Toes." She sells the felt sections and soles, you can choose the colours then stitch them up however you like. The felt is brilliant for stitching or needle felting into."

In case you want to try this splendid idea for yourselves, I have visited the website at no extra expense and here is a photo of the slippers in kit form : 

The kit costs £29 and the website address is joetoes.co.uk or you can ring them on 01484 443161
