mine

I've got a lot of slippers in the works, production-line-style, for the many ladies in my life, but these are for me:


I'm getting a feel for the materials, and getting better at sewing around the picky curves.


The herringbone is from a thrifted skirt, and the lining -- possibly my favorite part -- is a Donna Wilder design from the fabric store.


This time I didn't even bother with the velcro, because I can slip them on and off without moving the flap, so I just sewed everything together. The top-stitching detail around the upper wasn't part of the original pattern, but I thought it'd look nice on these.

They're holding up nicely, and they are SUPER CUTE for wearing around the house. It must be that time of year: I'm itching to wear pretty, sleek flats but it is full-on boots weather . So. I can have my cake and eat it, too. Or something.
