Here is a cute little pair of slippers that you can make. I was inspired by one of my favorite movie stars -Doris Day and designed these slippers to wear on those lazy days of summer afternoons sipping your chilled ice tea. Enjoy! Here is the pattern with the complete directions attached.

  22. These are wonderful. I can't wait to goto my fabric store and (attempt to) make them. Thanks for the inspiration! I am definitely going to post these on my blog! thepeachyqueen.blogspot.com

  23. These would be cool to modify as floor-drying shoes. When I wash my pergo floor, I need to dry it immediately or it shows streaks. I usually awkwardly shuffle a towel around with my feet. This would be a far more chic way to do it!

  24. Are they comfy? I guess I'll just have to whip up a pair and try them on!
