Adult animal slippers. 3 variations: bunny, bear and zebra. I made the bunny.
XS, S, M L, XL. I made an xs. I wear a women's size 5, kids size 3.5 or European size 35.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes but with more fuzzy because of the fabric that I used.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
This is a pretty basic pattern. I didn't read much of the instructions but the illustrations are great.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a cute pattern and you can whip up really quickly. It keeps my feet warm and the non-slip sole keeps me safe on the tile floor.
I used a fur fabric left over from my mildly successful plush puppy making enterprise. I think it originally came from either M&L or JoAnn's. I have a small pile of fake furs and felts that I've been staring at, wondering if I should give it away. Now I have a purpose for them.
The eyes, nose and inner ear is a wool blend felt. The non-slip sole was also from JoAnn's. It's stocked in the utility fabrics with the duck cloth and burlap.
The foam is again from JoAnn's. It's 1" green foam and I should have bought the white one because it shows through a little. It's not as firm as I would like so next time I'll go to the home dec store for foam.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
No changes made. That's why it was so quick to whip up.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes. There's so many animal variations that can be done. This is a fun project for a beginner sewer or anyone who want warm feet.
I've been eyeball deep in starting a pattern company and this was a nice mental break.
