I always make my husband a pair of slippers for Christmas...(yes, I am *quite* behind this year 'cause it's now May and I'm finally getting around to it  Roll Eyes )...
I didn't really make these from scratch, but instead bought the gray flannel slippers at Target and embellished them with cross-stitched skulls and clay "buttons" :







I made the buttons from epoxy clay and sewed them on...but I also ended up super-gluing the backs, too---I was so nervous about them coming off since they would probably be banged around and stepped on a lot!





I had fun...and I tested my memory of how to do cross-stitch! (I estimate that I spent about 10-12 hrs cross-stitching---*phew*)
There are a few different photos and more details about the specific steps at my blog post: http://www.twistedtextiles.com/2008/05/05/skull-and-cross-stitches/
