I've been working on this pattern for a couple months, trying to get the shape and feel of the slippers just right.  I think I've finally got something that satisfies me!  So far everyone who's tried them on says they're very comfy...and I have to agree.  If it wasn't so hot here they'd be a permanent fixture on my feet.

They look fabulous! Cheesy

How did you make the sole? I mean how did you make it stiff?

thanks!!  I made the stole stiff by making two of them and then sc them together.  I thought about sticking a dr. scholl's in there for good measure, but the two pieces alone seem to be enough.   I'll work on the tut and get it posted soon...
