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!

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.

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

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.

Don't tempt me! Tongue She has been quite the testy one lately...cutting a molar makes for a cranky 19mo old. If you see a box arrive on your doorstep with holes poked in the sides...then I took you up on your offer. Wink

Hi!
Ill try and make the tute brief, if I can,
I have the pattern scanned, but I cant make it do anything, Ill keep working on it
(technical computer Grumble!)

crosses fingers that this works

 Ok, I wanted the seams hidden and the elastic inside so it wouldnt chafe small feet,
if you want, you could just use one layer of fabric and make a casing for the elastic.

Cut 4 of each piece


Stitch one upper to a lining upper, leaving a hole in the middle of the seam to turn inside out


Zigzag elastic across the top of the wrong side of the outer upper




Fold the pieces in half, stitch along the back seam



Sew the soles to the corrosponding uppers,
I tend to do a tack stitch at one end to anchor the fabric, then start at the other end and sew right around.





Turn inside out through hole, and tuck lining inside outer



Tuck in opening, and top stitch around top,


Voila!
Find cute child to model



Hope that was useful!



Hints!
Measure the elasic to suit your own child.
A stretch stitch needle will work better than an ordinary needle. (for us who dont own a serger!)
Puff paint drawn on the bottom, will make these nonslip
(see my knotty slippers for explanation)
Feed each peice into your machine straight after the other, saves lots of time and cotton.


**** to make reversable***
when you have finished, zigzag over the elastic stitching to hold both layers of fabric together
tried it last night, works a treat!

Omg that's too funny. I have a pair sitting here that my friend asked me to make. They have toronto maple leafs on them, her baby is growing out of them and wanted a bigger pair. I see what you mean about the bib part. Yours are super adorable!!!

What a cute idea.

I had some of these...but the fabric was very "winnie the pooh, rattles", traditional baby prints.

These rock with a not so stereotypical fabric. Maybe i'm just partial cuz I love black n' hot pink together.

Either way, super cute!!!

So if you have no babies then why are you making them? For when you do have a baby or for your bear? These are adorable. Thanks for the tute!

( why I craft baby stuff and dont have a baby)

I just love to craft, and I go through fads.
Recently it was handbags and purses, now its baby clothes.
I have a new nephew but he lives out in the country, and I dont get pics back of him wearing things yet.
Im sure they will find a good home, I just give them away usually
