with little red flowers on, too.

i found that the heels came up quite high on these, above the ankle/ to the top of my achilles tendon, but then i have quite a flat foot (as in, the distance between the ground and my ankle is not as great as for most people).

they were for a swap for an awesome, amazing sewing bag (http://lupinbunny.blogspot.com/2007/02/squee-doesnt-even-begin-to-describe-it.html).

there's more detail about the flowers and the mods i made, and why these photos are really not the most interesting composition on my blog. can't be bothered to retype.

These are really cute. I especially like the added touch of the red flower. I would love to knit slippers one day, just have not gotten around to it yet but you have inspired me.

RubyPearl, they are soooooo easy. you knit i think a grand total of seven rows in the round. other than that, all flat. easy peasy.

These are fantastic!  I adore them!  I've knitting flowers before and putting a button in the middle is such a cool idea!

What did you use on the bottom?  Leather?

They look great!  Mine came up pretty high in the back as well, and I don't think I'm particularly flat-footed...

Yours are so cute!  I made one, but I didn't like how high the heel came up and never made the second one.  The flowers are a nice touch.

i would also like to know what it is that you've sewn to the bottom...i think knitted slippers are adorable, but i don't like wearing them because they're so, well, slippery! have you found that whatever it is that you've sewn to the bottom gives you good traction?
