Slippers

Slippers are good.
I regularly wish I was wearing mine when I step on a little pile of sand or crumbs.
I've made a few pairs lately. The first pair was made of yarn. While I enjoyed the process of turning a non-slipper shape of knitted material into an actual functioning slipper, and loved the color of the slippers, the texture of the yarn actually hurts my feet when I walk on my hardwood and tile floors. When I saw the pattern for these little beauties I hurled my to-do list out the window and made them that very day. Hand stitching the soles took a bit longer and almost derailed me altogether. I even cut into my favorite fabrics for these babies because I knew I'd love them and it turns out I really do. They are not too hot or too bumpy on my feet. They stop me from wanting to scream while working in my kitchen and they are really, super cute to look at, too. Not to mention they take very little fabric to whip up. I have plans to use some other materials and see what happens for winter slippers. Since I'll probably never finish my socks I guess I can just make lots of these and skip making socks all together.
We'll see.
