house shoes



sometimes it is just nice to start and finish a project in one night. none of that WIP business to have hanging over your head. So last night I made myself this pair of house slippers. I found the pattern at the Craft: pattern podcast on friday, and totally loved it. I used fabric I had close to hand, choosing heavyish weight cotton rather than the suggested denim.


and they fit!!

I am not much of a slippers girl, I like to be barefoot, and now I have 2 pairs as my mum bought me some pump style slippers for christmas too, but both those and these new house slippers are just nice to slip on for a bit when its cold and my toes feel icy. That is why I didnt worry about making them too sturdy, for occasional use prettiness wins the day.

Esme wants me to make her some now, another evening project for me.

Beautiful, great idea! A much better use of the fabric than the original one.
