Hmm . . . so I know this is a little late but I finally finished the slippers last night in time to give them to my mom for Christmas this morning.  The soles are double crochet with twisted ch7 loops between each.  I added plastic canvas to the soles for stability.  The tops are simply double crochet with one row of mesh for the ribbons to thread through.  I ended up hiding elastic under the ribbon to make them fit a little better.  So here they are:

Here's some more Christmas gift slippers:


These were for my punk-rock little brother Robin. The pattern was a total improv, his shoes are the size of canoes and it's kind of hard to find a pattern for that. I made a lame excuse to trace around his feet and worked from that. Anyway I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. I used black and white cotton for the top and purple cotton for the lining. The soles are several layers: Black felt, cardboard, quilt padding and the black and white cotton. On one of the slippers I stenciled his monogram RD with a gothic font. The bottom of the soles have a purple print. They were really appreciated, Robin's girlfriend wore them all day long. Cheesy


These are hot pink wool felt with a tiny duck family sewn on. I gave them to a good friend who really likes hot pink and those yellow "bathtub" ducks.

ooh, i love all the slippers! wish i had seen this at the start - slippers have been half-finished and on my "to do" list for a while now, and this would have given me a jumpstart!

thanks! i used this pattern: http://www.kindagrape.com/projects/janes.htm except i made them stockinette instead of garter, and made the toe a little less square. the heels were easy - actually the whole project went so quickly once i got started yesterday, i feel kind of dumb for taking so long to do it!

So lovely!  So very retro.  I swear, in the 70's my Grandmother made us all slippers (with pompons) for Christmas one year.  Triangle shawls for the girls, too!

Love yours!
