I Love Soft Cozy Slippers

For Christmas this year I decided I
wanted to make the grandkids slippers.
5 cute little pairs of them! 

So I started looking at fabric and
fell in love with Dr. Suess. I
couldn't get enough. I think it
was the bright colors. Perfect for
kids. And who does not like
Dr. Suess characters? 

I started on Landons first. He is the
cute little guy in my last two posts.
Not the baby, the big boy. 
He is 6. 
He is a big boy. 
Just ask him! 

I got softest red flannel I could find.
Dr. Suess flannel and some soft
furry plushy fabric for the innards.

Aren't they cute!!

I decided to hand stitch
around the tops. I love
the look of the blanket
stitch on different things.
Nice handmade look I think.

I cute out the leather in the shape
of a footprint. Just cut it freestyle
to fit the bottom of the slipper.
Thought it looked pretty cute!
Its  red leather, bottom side
up. No Slidin' with this either!

 I made my son a pair of slippers, his
leather on the bottom was a big
heart. He is 34, figured your never
to old to know mommy loves you! ha!

*sigh* I only got this one pair finished
before Christmas. And I have yet
to start the other 4.The rate I am
 going, I will probably
have them finished by 
next Christmas! ha! 
hmmm... did I just jinx myself???

Today I am loving
Weight Watchers fudge bars,
the great care my Dr. gave me this morning,
the wonderful phone call from a dear old friend,
all the laughter during that phone call,
my STILL lit Christmas tree,
sitting in my warm cozy bed this morning having
that first cup of tea,
my last cup of  tea in my warm cozy bed.
and you.
