I sew a lot, but Ive never sewn a pair of shoes. 
So I made a pair of slippers!  These are a gift for my Grandmother. 
I wanted to make her some potholders but I they'd be too lame of a gift.
I might just make the potholders as well.

Anyway, I'm modeling them, we have the same shoe size [I think shes got slightly smaller feet than I do, she always tries my shoes on, lol.]

So yeah.  Here are some pictures! 

Completed shoes:
[The open candy bar was my treat while making these shoes] 
But here you can see that the backs have elastic stitched into them.
Also on the right shoe, there is a flower hand beaded on it. 
That was frustrating as hell because I couldnt get a needle with a small enough eye for the seed beads to go over.

Action Shot [2]:


My shirt after all the times I had to rip seams and the fabric shredding on me:


I hope she likes them.  I also went back and put puffy paint on the bottom for grip.  I dont want her to slip in them ; _ ;
They took about 4.5 hours because I didnt know what I was doing.
Also, I'm not dirty.  That tile grout was like that when I moved in that apartment, lol.

Totally cute slippers! I love the lining fabric. They look like they're really comfortable with the elastic. What kind of fabric did you use for the outside?
