I made these slippers following this tutorial from the Purl Bee:
http://www.purlbee.com/mary-jane-slippers



The right side slipper was the first one I made and the picture highlights a few mistakes!

They were the first thing I've made following a pattern so they were a huge learning curve - I learned at least 6 new skills making them. I knit them a bit tight but thankfully they stretch, I think that might have partly been because US shoe sizes are smaller than UK shoe sizes. I just need to think of a way to make the soles non-slip now.

Those are very cute slippers.  Smiley Have you considered running some stripes of hot glue along the bottoms to make them non-slip?

Hot glue to make them non stick is a great idea, it's not likely to come off easily either. I'll have to get a glue gun!

To make my slippers non stick I use puffy paint(the kind in the squeeze bottles) and just make little dots on the bottom of the slippers.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
