I LOVE these things. They took a combined 7 hours to make (taking out distractions, and excluding the pom poms). I'm not one for slippers or socks of any kind. If I didn't live in Canada, I'd wear sandals and ballet flats all the time. But I needed a pair of slippers, all the store bought ones were okay, but I wanted to make my own. So here we are. They're ridiculously warm and comfy. Like a cold day outside, and you're inside sipping on hot chocolate warm and cozy. I hope you like them.

Very nice, they look snugly warm. Did you use a pattern or was this your own design?

Adorable! I love how they feel like socks and boots and ballet flats all at the same time.
