Well, I had to try!

I made some fleece slippers for my big footed 20 month old. Inspired most recently by Scrappy Sue (it *me* a lot longer to make the slippers than it takes to upload even very many files!) and also inspired by many other lovely slippers from here. I used these instructions from stardust shoes http://stardustshoes.blogspot.com/2006/10/cloth-shoe-pattern.html but modified them as follows: fleece instead of cotton fabric, no interfacing, enlarged 150%, stuck elastic through the layers rather than making a folded casing since the things would have been too think and maybe too short ... um. plus the usual array of errors and misunderstandings!

My boy will not put them on just now so his doll (named G'neer for "Engineer", though suspiciously looking like Raggedy Andy) is wearing them.

these are cute, I like the contrasting colors. Have you seen this tut, they are super simple and come out kinda like what you have there http://www.newconceptions.com/patpdf/Footiespdf.pdf
I hope your son will like them soon!

MacesMeMe! That tut looks great -- provides a bit more "how to" than the one I used too and the method is simpler -- at least it looks to be to these eyes. I will try that one too.

My kids are beyond booties but I like the stay on style so am trying to make big ones out of patterns for small ones. We'll see!

love your slippers!
yeah I agree in fleece the fold over for the elastic is way too thick and leaves the heel too low,
glad it wasnt just me lol
I really like the stripey leggings on the doll too, did you make those?
have a fun day!
