I scored a very comfy pair of bedroom slippers for a very very nice clearance price, which made me very happy. They were very soft, but plain white. And I can't stand plain white. So out comes the felt and sewing thread! I don't have any before photos, but I'm sure you can imagine what they were like.

I was inspired by a picture of a smiley face tote bag on the cover of Aranzi Aronzo's Cute Stuff:

I made them two different colors because it was more fun that way.  Grin And because I like those colors. The green smiley face came out a little wonky, but that's no biggie. So now I'm doubly happy, because my new slippers are both cheap and cute!

(Unfortunately, the stitches around the edging of the slipper started to come apart after a week. I expected more from that brand but I guess you get what you pay for. A little white thread fixed that right up though! And the smiley faces still make me happy every time I look at them! Cheesy)
