I was absoutely determined to make the boys some slippers this year. Partly it was being on the Utmost Challenge, and partly it was because the slippers we've bought them over the past few years have been absolutely useless. However, the really cold weather is here (2°C this afternoon) and I have made one slipper.
It's a pretty good slipper, but unless they take it in turns to hop around the house it's not much use.
So hurray for the little old lady I met at a bitterly cold Vide Greniers this weekend, who was just finishing off the blue slippers above (modeled by Son 1). She had the rather fetching pair worn by Son 2 already on her stall. Those ones fit perfectly, but I had to put a bit of elastic around the blue ones before Son 1 was comfy. They are both very happy to have warm, handmade feet!
