Susan's Super Slippers


 This is a simple pattern for my super slippers. These make up quickly and are terrific for fund raisers, gifts or to indulge your self. They travel well and are good for when you are staying away from home and want some foot cover to duck into the bathroom.  Do take care on polished boards, as they can be quite slippery. I have provided these in three sizes however there is quite a bit of stretch in these and depending on your yarn they will fit a range of foot shapes. Once you have the hang of these you can experiment with buttons and bows, pom poms and embellishments however then they wouldn't be so simple!

Have fun, and do donate as many as you can to charity.

I made your slippers and love them and to make them not slippery on the floor I put Tulip Puffy fabric paint on the bottom. You can add that to your blog if you like that way you children and adults don't fall on slippery surfaces. Just a suggestion that works. THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING.
