Jannw, thanks for the heads up on the sizes. I also like the idea of loose elastic around the top. I found some of the non-skid at Joanns yesterday and plan to make these tomorrow. Thanks again.

These look great. I love hte idea of using shelf grip for the sole - I'm going to steal that for my next pair of slippers.

OOOOO! I just love your slippers! They look so toasty warm and are so cute! I just got the "green pepper" fleece sock pattern - wish I had seen your review first! Another pattern for the wish list!

thank you all for your kind comments...JTink-If the sole size is the same, it should work..can you see a overlap on the side of the bootie? That should give you an indication of width.Do any of his regular shoes have a removable inner sole? A woman's 9 is about a man's 5 if I am remembering correctly. It would be fairly easy to put a casing in at ankle level and run some elastic also, if you think they might flop a bit.

I'm so glad you made these. I bought this pattern with my husband's Christmas present in mind. I already cut out the top and pants. I was holding off on the slipper because I haven't found the non-skid yet. I was thinking of using white vinyl. But if all else fails, that shelf liner idea is a winner. You said you wear a 9 shoe and made an extra small slipper. My husband wears a 10. I was planning on using the XL for him. I compared it with a pair of bootie slippers he wore last year and they are the same sole size. Do you think it would be too large for him? Thanks so much for all the added tips.

These really are a great idea and using the gripping shelf liner was an inspiration. Very cozy looking and my prediction for you: warm feet ahead!
