I made some adorable ballet-style slippers using this pattern http://www.homecompanionmag.com/hands_on/handmade/sole-ful_slippers.asp, but they just weren't warm enough for the chilly New England weather.  With a little retooling I increased the size of the pattern and added a layer of quilt batting to the uppers and insoles.  I like the look and they are much warmer than the original version.

Update:  Sorry but it appears that the pattern I used is no longer available online.   It was a Heather Ross pattern and is included in her new book "Weekend Sewing."

Those are SO cute, and I am in agreement with everyone else I love the quilting and the fabric!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

These slippers are brilliant.  I especially love the fabric.  Where did you get it?
