Well, for southern Az it’s starting to get cold. Finally! And wouldn’t you know, our heater broke! Of course the part we need isn’t in and we have to wait till Monday (ugh!!!). A broken heater, big windows with no curtains, plus concrete floors makes for a rather chilly home. We are doing are best to keep warm. Baking, making soup, lots of hot tea and getting out the warm clothes and blankets is helping some.
My poor little guy doesn’t have slippers so I attempted to make some for him. I actually sketched out a rough drawing for these a month ago, then spent the whole morning trying to figure out my sketch and remember what I was thinking. I had traced his foot back then as well and used that same foot pattern. Unfortunately, I think his foot has grown over the last month because they just barely fit.
I put puffy paint zig-zags on the bottoms(fleece) to make them skid-free. I think it did the trick. You know, those concrete floors can be slippery for little slippered feet. Especially the kind of feet that like to run as fast as Super Man.
I don’t have a pattern for these, but I do have a headache from making them. I’d like to say that I’ll be making these again, bigger and lined with fleece, but that may very well be a pipe dream. Who knows, I may get a little more motivated if we don’t get some heat in this place!!
