After having a go at making the other baby slippers and reading various posts about baby slippers, I thought Id try making some slippers that stay on.
Well I guess not if a baby really wants them off, and short of using superglue, but they look fairly good I thought.
See what you think.
I really need a baby to try them on, the bear is just not that energetic about tugging them off.
Oh the name Plogs is what my partner called them when he first saw them, sounded as good as anything!

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

My daughter had some of those when she was a baby!  I don't remember the brand or anything but they never came off and they were reversible.  Hers were pink and purple.  She's 13 now so it's been awhile.LOL

These are great. I love the name too -- the pirate fabric is sweet and nice thematic contrast with the pink interior. PLOGS! These are your invention? Very cool.

Thanks for the comments!
I remember seeing something similar back when my kids where babies, 20 years ago, but I couldnt find a pattern anywhere so I tried making one up tonight.
The ones I remember had a little patch on the front like a bib, if that makes sense.
I couldnt work that part out.
But I did take photos while I was making them if anyone wants to try them.

ps
Post your little one over and we'll do a photo shoot!

um what does thematic mean?

Oh cool! I remember those slippers you are talking about...they were called plodders, paddlers...something like that? They WERE good slippers. I think they went out of business not too long ago (after the robeez trend )

We've had ones similar to that for some of our little ones.  If you want to post a brief tute, I'd be happy to give them a go for my little guy.
