Hi everyone Smiley

As my old slippers were falling apart, I made new ones.
The post with the old ones, containing the tutorial/pattern

People keep telling me that I look a bit insane wearing them, but I like them Smiley
The fabric is so soft and fluffy, like velvet with a very short pile? And the colours are so great!!!









Making of (Maybe this helps with the pattern?)

I love them, they are so colorful and joyful. I also like how you used the fabric. Don't listen to "people", they're wrong!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Wow! What fun these are!  Now my mind is wondering about who in my life might need something like this as a gift.

I shall be making a secret pair of these for my husband, if I can wangle some time without him watching. Beautiful work!

(I fell in love with him the evening I saw him perform with his old band The Pendulums in Glasgow, Halloween 2007. He was dressed as a gnome, in green tights, a green polo neck shirt, a red hat and red felt shoes that he's made himself. This pattern reminds me of that very much!)

These are totally awesome. I am jealous of them. I should make some, no?

Thanks!

I think everyone should make a pair. Or a few Wink

I imagine some thick felt would work great as well
