Those tiny baby slippers I made were so darn cute I didn't want my boys to feel left out since I've been making loads of mommy & baby stuff lately. The thing is, both my guys have much, much bigger feet, so I decided to blow up the pattern to make some for them. The first enlarged pair turned out what I call "smurf" style meaning they are way oval looking & a bit cartoony. Declan loved them anyway and I was thrilled to use some of my leftover French vocab fabric (educational & fun!).
I used some scrap denim I had to make the bottoms be able to handle more wear & tear.
I made my own slipper pattern to accommodate bigger kid feet that is more slimmed down , so Ethan's pair turned out a little more normal and I used some scraps left over from the pyjamas I made a while back, so he has a complete nighttime ensemble:
The best part is they both want to wear them all the time and I had loads of scrap fabric left from previous projects, so our slipper supply will be never ending!
