Cute Clogs

The clogs came out cute don't you think?

After they were dry I painted them with some rug backing. It seals the fibers and gives me a non-skid sole. I paint on two coats:

Jim, myself, and the kids are heading out to a house party for New Year's Eve, so I hope they are dry by then so I can wear them.

  6. I love those clogs! Rug backing is a swell idea. I wonder if they sell it around here? You did a great job. The soles look great, very professional. Have a great New Years!

  7. Did you use the Fiber Trends pattern for those? I've made clogs from that but they don't look as nice as yours do. What pattern did you find? huh, huh, huh?

  11. I think they are great, my mother occasionally forgot and went shopping with her slippers on, but she was getting old and it was terribly funny for us. Teenagers have no clue as to what is warm and functional, look at them all huddled in the snow in jean jackets and sneakers! Not like I ever did that.. heheheheh, well maybe I did but I ain't telling!
