Slippers!!!

OK – I saw this post by {} Spool and was VERY intrigued – I have a slipper fetish. I’ll admit it. So I emailed her and asked a couple questions like “Do the seams bother you?” She very graciously answered my questions and I thought it was worth a try. Luckily it rained today (not only did I want to spend a rainy day in the craft room but we really needed the rain!)

This is what I came up with -

What a good idea huh! They are made to fit my feet – they feel like a quilt for my feet and they don’t squinch my toes – heaven. . . then I made a pair for my hubby and he has them on right now and it took me around an hour and a half even with having a ton of interruptions – pretty quick!! I’ll figure out something cuter to replace the elastic and buttons – maybe just cuter buttons. To make them I just traced my feet and started sewing – don’t you just love the fabric? (Julie, I know you don’t but maybe everybody else does – ha ha!) It was given to me by a dear neighbor when she moved – it has to be pretty old, and is pre-quilted – one of the best things about this project is that you can use scraps. By the way, I used denim for the sole. I hope you all had a good weekend! And, MG we have you in our prayers and are sending you good thoughts – we love you!!!!!
