I LOVEEEE these slippers and I think with some funky fabrics they'd be adorable Christmas gifts when paired with some homemade soaps/etc. 

These, in particular, are from Restoration Hardware and look pretty simple. Does anyone have any suggestions?



Thanks very much!

Merry crafting!  Cheesy

You know, those look very similar to some paper shoes my stepmom used to make wtih her daycare kids...  All those were was a (generous) tracing of the foot for the sole, in this case, you'd bring the toe part to a point, and then two pieces for the sides.  Hers had a tongue that wrapped up from flat toes, but as these have pointy toes, you could skip that.  To get the sides, the overall length would be the length of half your sole's perimeter, the height of the foot part would be from the floor to the top center of your instep, and the length of the instep would be, y'know, the length of your instep (stand on your sole tracing and measure from your toe point to just where your ankle meets your foot), and the rest would be ankle.  It may take some trial and error, but I don't think it'd take more than two tries to get it comfy.  Those are cute!
