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!

These are great!  I love how you crisscrossed your elastic too, I was wondering how I should do mine and that gives me some good ideas.  I still haven't started on mine (it's been an epic fail weekend/week) but now I really can't wait to get to them!

Hey. Thanks so much for the tut. I just made a pair. Unfortunately I made them a little low in the heel area, so they slip off at the back. I made straps with buttons to hold them on better. I might make another pair if I can find some fabric that I want to use. Now that I know how it should be easier.

Thanks again!

Hey!

Awesome slippers. I had an empty afternoon today and was bumming around here being bored when I saw your tutorial! I loved it so much, I had to make it myself *right away*!



There they are. I know where all my mistakes are and I'm dying to make another pair without the mistakes I made this time!

Soooo much fun! Thanks for this tutorial!

Thanks for the great tutorial.  Here is my version.

The colors are a little washed out due to a lousy camera phone.  They are much brighter IRL.
