These are cheapie dollar store terrycloth houseshoes (like $3), the kind with the little bows on the front.

I took the bows off with a seam ripper and sewed on some little fabric yo-yo's.  (I made a smaller red one for the second shoe, but I like the way it looks with only one yo-yo.) 

Lastly, I added a couple of plastic, shank style vintage buttons, and voila, super cute houseshoes!

I love anything with fabric yo-yo's...especially if it can involve shoes!
Very creative.

Thanks!  I'm thinking I need to add something to the center of the third yo-yo now, but I don't want to use the same button again.  Any suggestions?
