Christmas Slippers

Rather than do useful things leading up to Christmas, like get organised, make art or blog, I decided to make the family slippers for Christmas, using a pattern I had seen in Making magazine.
Amazingly, they all fit and the kids are enjoying sliding on our wooden floors whilst wearing them. I used a piece of over-felted felt for the soles, so hopefully they will last as long as the kids are their current shoe size.
It was nice to make something practical for once, although it would have been more practical to actually buy them and use my time more productively. I think the same could be said for the fudge made as gifts for teachers. It tasted great, but took ages and my pan still hasn't recovered from the burnt batch...!

Cute and useful. Who in your family has the odd sized feet though? Loved the piece on your previous post which I somehow managed to miss.

I was wondering if anyone was going to notice that! I just couldn't find two of the slippers for the photo and they were for the biggest and smallest feet and I thought it looked quite funny.
Glad you liked the new piece.
