Carpet slippers made from carpet

These Hospital Slippers from 1862 Petersons’ Magazine called for actual pieces of carpet. Alas without a genuine carpet to sacrifice, in my experience you can line upholstery fabric with a good very stiff buckram or canvas to get a reasonable facsimile. I would also add a cloth covered cardstock insole to protect you from Legos you didn’t know you owned.
