Pattern Description: Adult's and Children's snuggly Slippers. "Slippers are lined with heavyweight stretch knits and have padded non-slip soles. View A & B are made from three contrast fabrics and have folded down cuffs. View A has decorative buttons. View C has a decorative tab with buttons." They are a pull on slipper similar in shape to an Ugg boot. There is a band between the sole and the body of the boot to help cope with all the layers.
Pattern Sizing:XS to XL Adults sizes on one sheet and XS to XL Children's sizes on another sheet all in the same envelope.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, but mine were simplified. I did View C without the tab.
Were the instructions easy to follow?They are excellent. I did my own variation of the construction as I did not do the gripper sole or extra fleece sole. The original has three layers at the sole not counting the lining. I did one complete boot out of polar fleece outside and one complete boot out of a minke/polar fleece combination inside and joined them right side to right side at the tops, matching the side seams and leaving a 2" gap at the back for turning the boot out. Then I machine stitched the gap closed.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I like how comfortable they feel. What I made are basically double layered bed socks for my daughter. My only dislike is that the foot shape is not really a foot shape but an elongated oval to simplify construction. Once I modified it to become more shaped like a real foot red line I had to make sure I matched left boot to left lining and right boot to right lining and it all gets complicated if you do not thread mark your pieces.
* If you reshape the soles bear in mind that the inner curve on the lining has to mirror the curve on the sole when it is flipped in.
Fabric Used:Left over polar fleece and minke from other projects.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I am going to sew them again. This is a great project for gifts and for using up left over sweat shirting or fleece. Here's a link to my blog
