I’m cold. ALL OF THE TIME. It doesn’t help that our condo has wood floors and floor to ceiling windows. For Christmas a couple of years ago, I bought Andrew a nice pair of Ugg slippers to wear around the house, but I actually end up wearing them more. I should have just bought a pair of slippers for myself, but if you’ve looked at the slipper selection out there, it’s not great. They’re either super kitschy, granny-like, or too expensive for my taste.
So…when I saw the Mary Jane Slipper pattern from the little house by the sea, I knew I had to make them.
This is a fabulous pattern! It’s well written and the instructions are super easy to follow. I was actually surprised that I was able to pull it off. The first slipper came together extremely quickly. I anticipated finishing the first slipper and being so frustrated that I would never finish the second, but that was definitely not the case. I started and finished the second slipper just a few days later.
I wore these around the house all weekend and they kept my feet nice and cozy. They are a little large, which is why I included the strap even though I intended to leave it off like Ami did. I think I’ll make another pair, make it smaller, and leave off the strap.
They already need to be washed since I wore them while making this meal: Feijoada, which you can read about in one of my early posts.
The only negative is that they collect thread like crazy!
