I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Saw the owl slippers on the front page and said, "I'm wearing those!" Foot goodies, indeed!  Kiss

Thanks everyone! Here's the links for patterns:

For the owl slippers I used this basic pattern. When you come to the part when you've finished the back of the slipper and are starting to stitch around the opening and working decreases around the toe part I only did the first round to make room for the owls.

The owl pattern is this owl granny pattern. I used a size E hook to make it small enough to fit in the slipper, making it like a makeshift tongue. And I used a dot of fabric paint for the eyes.

I didn't take a picture, but to attach the owl I flipped the slipper inside out and used stitch markers (thanks, Jennie!) to hold the owl in place then I attached the owl to the slipper by slip stitching through the back loops so when you flip it right side out the attached portions are not seen. I hope that makes sense.

Here's the pattern I used for the Ravenclaw Common Room Slippers:

And here's the pattern I used for the socks:

Hope that is helpful!
