Slippers

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!

    LOVE THEM!! I’d put those little rubber sticky’s on the bottom so they don’t slip on your nice floor.

      That’s a great idea. Although slipping and sliding is kind of fun…until I fall on my ass…which is highly likely to happen at some point knowing me.

      They are so bright and look so comfy! I am always wearing two pairs of socks to keep my feet warm – these look much better.

        I was doing the two socks, too, but that adds to the laundry so I’m glad I went this route.
