I fear I've gone a little crazy with my latest project. I'm not even sure how I got started on this path, but over the weekend I made six pairs of slippers. Six. And I'm sure I'm not done.
The pattern is Sweater Slipper Boots and Boot Socks from fibersandtwigs on etsy. its fantastic! I bought the adult one first, but after I made the first pair I went back and bought the baby/child pattern as well. Each pair took me under an hour including cutting. They are made from sweaters that have been felted (shrunk in the wash). My mom and I went thrifting and I picked up a sweater or two at each of the three stores we went to. My favorites are the ones with stripes or fair isle details. So far I have used most of them, which is pretty good for me. Sometimes my plans are bigger than my available time, especially with holiday gift making! I think maybe this year I will buy supplies for a project then do it before I buy the next supplies. That would keep me from buying lots of supplies, running out of time, then buying gifts too!
But I digress. Long story short, I love these slippers! I made many, and I will make many more. Success!
