I wandered down into my wife R’s basement studio to find her making slippers. The ones she had started with were just multiple layers of cloth and an old blanket for cushioning. After ordering a pair for myself we started discussing alternative materials for the soles and the obvious was some leather cut on the Glowforge. Thanks to a recent package from Rita that was no problem!
So here is the first attempt. The leather cut beautifully and putting in the holes for the thread makes attaching them quite straight forward. I think R is just experimenting with how to attach the leather here and will no doubt be mad at me for posting a picture.
