Hi all. I am working on the felted clog slippers http://www.fibertrends.com/p/ac33e-felt-clogs-pdf-downloadLast week I came across cork soles online for felted clogs, but now I cannot find them anywhere.Does anyone know where you can find cork soles similar to the ones on these clogshttp://www.rei.com/zoom/xx/3db519de-a721-4e83-92fe-7e701d9f0ed3.jpg/440
I found these, though I'm not sure how to attach the clog to the cork bed. HTH
It depends on what stores are around you. I was able to find some soles at Hobby Lobby but I don't know if you have one in your area. Good luck.
Charlotte,I think those soles are insoles.I am looking for soles for the bottom of the clogs.
Bootbrans,Did you find soles for the bottom of clogs? Do you have a link or anything?
I've been knitting for several years and I've never seen cork soles. I think they'd be very difficult to attach. These are the type I intend to use. http://www.paradisefibers.com/accessories/knitting-crochet-accessories/slipper-soles.html
Here's a bunch on etsy, but I don't think there is any cork. http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?includes%5B0%5D=materials&search_type=all&page=1&q=slipper+soles&ref=related
Thanks for your reply.I am hoping to use my clogs as outside shoes.If I cannot track down the cork, I will probably use something like these rubber soles. Or somehow come up with a way to make my own cork soles.http://www.etsy.com/listing/162753156/rubber-toe-soles-for-your-own-projects?ref=shop_home_active
The rubber soles look interesting but how will you attach them to the slipper?
The soles I linked attach with shoe glue & stitches.I was going to use Shoe-Goo along with stitching.I did find a seller on etsy who makes her clogs with cork soleshttp://www.etsy.com/listing/98208399/special-sale-cork-sole-felted-ecological?ref=shop_home_activeBut I was looking for a different sole.In my knitting class, I met a mom whose husband has made their own shoes and we got to talking about soles. I may ask for her advise.I may end up making my own sole out of a combination of cork and rubber the way the Stegmann and Haflinger wool clogs are.I need to get the clogs made first.Having difficulty reading the pattern.
I was going to sugest you either look back through your browsing history (if you haven't cleared it) to see if anything rings any bells or visit your local shoe repairer to see if they can help. But it sounds as if speaking to your classmate, or her husband, will be a better first port of call.
