Chill Out Slippers

Sometimes you just need to chill out - and these slippers are just perfect for that!  I've just finished making these 'Chill Out Slippers' by Make it Perfect

This is a pattern from Toni Coward's book - 'Make it Perfect - 21 easy patterns for sewing women's and children's clothes'. 
This is a great book that has been out for a while but I have only just bought it recently.  I desperately needed new slippers so when I saw the 'Chill out Slippers' I just knew that I had to make that project first.  They were very easy and quick to make and I've made them from fabric scraps I had in my stash.  The only extra fabric that I did buy for them was the Jiffy Grip fabric (a fabric with grip dots in it to use on the soles).  I used cotton fabrics with light weight pellon and some quilt wadding in the sole for cushioning.  These will be perfect for the warmer weather and in fact I am wearing them now while I write this as they are just so comfy! 

I think I'll have to make another pair when we get back to the cooler weather and I'll try some heavier weight cotton or cotton drill fabric and a thicker pellon and padding in the sole for extra warmth. 
Happy Sewing!
