Christmas gifts I made, elf slippers
I posted the tutorial for this in November here, thanks to to the Mayamade blog. These are adorable! I made a pair for my son out of soft merino & cashmere for the, now traditional, elf picture for our Christmas card. They are adorable, but they slip off his feet when he walks in them. In in "secret Santa" I did with friends, I drew a friend's baby, so I was excited to make him a pair out of cashmere! On those I tweaked the pattern by curving in the pattern by the ankle. I am happy to report that they don't fall off after doing that! I will have to go back & fix Jack's next time I have my sewing machine out. I sewed pieces of non-slip on the bottoms from the stuff you put under a rug. The adorable elf is my son, and the "baby" is his old doll, Soupy, modeling the baby cashmere ones. They are much cuter in real life!
