« on: June 21, 2009 03:04:40 PM »

I decided to make myself some house shoes with leftover fabic I had.  I used the kimono shoe pattern from i thinksew.com!  It was great and easy to work quickly!   For the upers I used alexander henry's tattoo fabric.  I lined the shoes with fuzzy leopard print.  

Since I am on my feet all day either bouncy baby around, or chasing toddler, I encased a Dr. Sholl's gel insole with leopard fabric for a bit more support.  This made them SO comfy!  Usually I am a size 7 1/2 so I chose the size 8 from the pattern, but due to the bulkiness of the gel insole, they are a bit tight and the heel slips a bit.  I remedied that with a little elastic loop, which i think looks rather cute!  Next pair I make with be a bit biggers size ..... and I may use suede as the sole, so I can quickly run outside if need be!  Let me know what you think!
