Before:



After:



Made with felt.  I only sewed through the top layer of the slipper so that there wouldn't be any threads to itch at his feet. 

Andnow I havea blister from pushing hard on the needle Sad  Ah, well.)

Thanks! They were real easy to do -  here's the dragon I used:



I just modified it a bit after i shrank it to size and cut it out (like taking off the points!), and reduced the flame to just one flame instead of two.  They're made from felt, btw.

SA picked red, because that's his choice for a dragon color, but I'd have rather done it in green!

I would recommend getting a tapestry needle though.  I bent 3 needles in the process, and gave myself a blister from pushing onthe needle so hard.

update:

Felt, not so good. Next time, I'm using fleece.  The felt pulled. It doesn't look horrid or anything, but they now look a bit on the worn side.  Ah, well. SA still loves them though!

I'm not sure what they're made of, to be honest. I got them over at Wal-Mart in the men's department.  Dearform makes them, I think?
