Well these aren't shoes, so I figured slippers probably go here.  Anyways I really like them, though next time I will make a few tweaks.  The pattern sizing ran a little small... luckily I could tell just by looking at it so I made a size bigger!  Next time I will also make the backs a little higher, but all in all I am very pleased!!!  My 2.5 year old son calls them my "minnie" shoes Cheesy that boy has a serious thing for Mickey & Minnie!!!  Anyways, here they are!

  They are comfy!  They will stay on better when I make the next pair.  They stay on now, but the backs are just too low.

 Actually when I saw them I didn't think Minnie Mouse at all..... .I totally was thinking Smurfette! Between your shoes and Ghilies Smurfette hat a la hair, it would be one great only-female-in-a-colony-of-men combo! Great job!

okay so I played around with the pattern a LOT & finally got it sized approiately.  The great thing is for the most part the shape of your feet don't matter!  You just need the length... thats how I KNEW the pattern was off... I wear a size 7 US & made the 7.5-8.5 & they are barely long enough!  Anyways I enlarged it to 210% instead.  I also had to play with the file to get it to print off properly onto 2 pages.  Anyways I am happy & will be making more today!  I also want to get some leather for the bottoms so they can be shoes instead of just slippers!

Also I wanted to note, I have been wearing them all morning & even though they feel to short they are still staying on fine.  Anyways heres the link to the original tutorial & pattern, though I may make my own soon with the leather bottoms, no pull & the more shoe look instead.

Anyways enjoy!  http://www.homecompanionmag.com/hands_on/handmade/sole-ful_slippers.asp

I forgot, I also just doubled up the layers of fabric on the bottom instead of using the felt!
