The past few weeks have been weird. Barefoot? Socks? Even flip-flops? Nothing felt just right... I missed my slippers. Now, a reasonable person would just go buy a pair of new ones, but it's summer. There isn't a huge selection out there. Then it hit me... I had bought everything to make slippers (the pattern is in Anna Maria Horner's amazing "Handmade Beginnings" book).
So in just a few short hours on Saturday I sewed up these beauties:
I used up some of my Anna Maria Horner fabric in my stash and since it was a large scale print, I ended up with a little mis-match set of slippers for the tops. The bottoms and sides are Ultrasuede and the lining is some flannel from Jo-anns. I chose not to add any embroidery or the flower to them, briefly I thought about adding some pom-poms. The pattern was easy to follow and went really quickly! So far I think that this is the best pair of slippers I have ever had (they are super cozy!!!!) and I am going to make a least one more pair for me and a pair for my mom.
