the tutorial is on the first message of this post...

I have the pattern done, I just need to get some fleece... tomorrow! i think i may go and buy a fleece blanket for 3 or 5 and use it for this project ( and some others !!). i can't wait ( and no, I didn't spend one hour trying to find fleece i can use for it.... I couldn't sacrifice my daughter blanky..... could I?)

So I may have pics taken and posted here tomorrow!

Done!!

Next time ( because there will be a next time Smiley ), I will make them a little more tight. I used very old blue jeans for the sole, and my machine went through all the layers with no problem! i am very happy and my LilOne wants some too!! thank you again for the tutorial, that was a fun rainy day project!

here is the pic!

I bookmarked this tute as well!  My sister just gave me a whole bag of rug gripper scraps that I think could be used for the bottom of this slipper to make them non-slip--has anyone tried using this stuff and will it stick when you don't want it to?

I love that you can use great fabric for maximum impact!!

Fabulous job on the tute and love that you made it fun with your sense of humor and your "victim"! Wink
