    That is a great idea! Thanks for the tutorial!

  2. LisaW says:

    What a fun idea! I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks!

  3. Bianca Tovar says:

    Oh this is super cool! I live in deep South Texas and so I can really never justify making myself cloth slippers I’d only wear for a couple of months. Can’t believe I never thought of this. I guess it is because I couldn’t figure out the best way to position the straps. Thank you for sharing these great tutorials! 🙂

  4. Kathy says:

    These are fantastic! I need these for my upcoming honeymoon in April =D

  5. Stephanie says:

    These are ingenious! I can’t wait to make some!

    Yay!!! I am planning to make West Virginia University PJ pants for my best friend for her birthday in a couple weeks and I will deffinitely be making matching slippers now! I’m so excited!! Thanks!

  7. Annette says:

    Ahhh – so many ideas so little time. Will definitely need to make time for those slippers!! Way cute.

  8. Clara says:

    These slippers are great. We don’t wear shoes in the house for sanitary reasons and it is always good to have slippers on hand for guests uncomfortable with this.

  9. Jennifer says:

    LOVE these slippers! Super cute. Will place on project-to-do list!

  10. naomig says:

    I would never, in a million years thought to make slippers. Genius! So cute! One other commenter said she’d like to do pajama pants and slipper combos as gifts, that is such a fun idea!

  11. Kay says:

    Oh, those are really nice. I’m just worried I wouldn’t want to wear them but only have them lying around to look at them 😉
