Toddler Slippers

Jeremy is growing fast these days and I am struggling to keep up with providing him well fitting clothes! Anyway, the latest thing to grow a lot has been his feet and I've had to buy new socks.

With the colder weather, he has been wearing slippers around the house during the day... a fabulous home made pair that stay on really well (thanks Aunty Paula!). Alas they are now too small and try as I might, I couldn't find the pattern for them online. So I found another pattern and after some struggles I managed to measure my boy's feet and create some new slippers.

The original pattern had a tongue and eyes on the toe area to make them look like dragons, but I dispensed with those. The pattern can be found here. The slippers are held on by elastic around the ankle and feature a line of rick rack down the centre front (this was meant to be the scaly part of the dragon).

The tutorial was very helpful, and if you don't mind drawing up your own pattern, then I would recommend it! Hopefully they will fit at least until the end of winter!

  1. I'm glad Jeremy enjoyed his slippers until the last. I did blog about making them here: http://ostinatoseaker.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/baby-shoes.html and there is a link to the original pattern there too (from This Heart of Mine). Can't believe you left the eyes off - that would have been awesome!
