One of my side projects has been the above duo of carpet slippers and footstool, all the better to "Relax and Put Your Feet Up" with. I made the slippers first out of wool orts or "worms", the little bits left over from other projects. Then, as our rug-hooking group had a show coming up at the Hive, I began to fret over what else I could make in a short time. I found the little footstool at our local thrift store, and hooked upholstery to match the slippers. I find this very amusing. Hope you do too.
