751  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: 50%+ handmade holiday presents 2007 edition? on: November 18, 2007 09:45:38 PM
I ve been doing about 75 percent or more handmade for the last three years, and I think it makes me think about my childhood when this was more common.  I only have two other good friends who do this... most people purchase things.  I love having found communities online that support this idea for lessening the huge mass market merchandise that flood us every year after halloween...

As per rules... I am adding the totally not a tutorial description of what I did to make the slippers:

Neon green fleece. I traced my eldest daughters insole and added 1/4" for seam allowance, 2 soles for each foot (4 total). Then I folded the fleece and traced the top instep half of the slipper by tracing 1/2" around the top of the insole, the fold lying about midsole. This way I figured there would be enough fabric for the rise of the instep. Then I estimated the heel and side piece by (very advanced technique...I always seem to WING IT) by rolling the insole from side to side of where the top would align and adding a half inch to each end. This strip was about four inches wide, and I folded it down to double it. I appliqued a skull and cross bones that I drew on black fleece and cut out with ziggy scissors onto the top of the slipper instep. Then I sewed it down and added the backpiece. It ended up being a bit large so when she was in the slipper I pinched a bit at the back, sewed a triangle shaped piece at the achilles to take it in, snipped off the excess and viola! It needs some tweaking, but she ADORES THEM. It stretches to fit moms feet too...hehe

But there are little strings poking out inconspicuously, and the seams are crooked... I am so envious of those crafters who can make it look store bought.  Mine is so TOTALLy not!!!  Maybe I am too hard on myself...lol, but THANKS SO MUCH for the major confidence boost!  I usually lurk here and want to be as good as most here... there are amazing artists here that create amazing things thats for sure
