My 4 yr old son liked the cloth baby shoes I made and asked if I would make him a pair of slippers.  I traced and measured his foot to make a pattern like the one for the baby shoes.  He did ask a couple times when I was tracing and measuring, "Are you done with my foot yet?".  Not very patient!  I asked him if he wanted slippers or not and he put up with the "fittings" without complaint after that.  I was going to use a paint pen to dot or squiggle grippers on the sole, but he asked if I'd leave them slippy so he could slide around the house.  He has had tons of fun with them!



The tops are cotton airplane print lined in red dotted cotton.  The back and inner sole is puppy print flannel.  The bottom sole is cut from an old fleece blanket (I was thinking warmth, he was thinking maximum slippage!)  We argued over the fabric choices for a while, I wanted to use prints/fabrics for the lining that I had lots of and save the cutesy stuff for the outers of more shoes/slippers.  Also, I wanted all the fabrics to coordinate (not match, just work with each other), he kept picking random prints from the scrap bag that he thought looked cool.  I have promised him another pair using some of the other fabrics.
