With small pieces of fabric, sewers can create great slippers for their children. They won't be able to resist the soft curly haired puppy or the white furry bunny with floppy ears! Recycle those old jeans that no longer fit and turn them into a pair of combat slippers with a pocket, a great slipper for any little boy. Or bring out the ballerina in your little girl with the Moroccan slippers decorated with gems and spangles. With 8 different designs, sewers will have fun selecting fabrics and designs to match each of their child's personalities. Full color photographs, charts, and easy-to-read instructions guide the sewer through each project. A general instructions section provides all the information needed to get started. With just a little fabric and thread, anyone can create slippers for kids!
As a child, I was fascinated by mother kneeling on the floor, smoothing the fabric and carefully pinning the pattern pieces. I, every bit as carefully, loved to follow behind her, unpinning the patterns and placing the pins back into the cushion. I could not have been more than four or five. My earliest memory of sewing is creating clothes for my Barbie Doll. I used a hand needle and thread, and scraps from my mother's dress. I progressed to baby doll clothes, followed by the Catholic School white uniform blouses. After receiving a Clothing and Textile degree from Madison Area Technical College, I was fortunate to be hired by two different sewing machine companies, and traveled around the country working at trade shows and state fairs, educating sewing machine dealers and consumers. Currently, as a controller for five regional real estate offices with over 150 agents in upper Indiana, I still sew, knit and crochet for relaxation after a busy day of crunching numbers. I find my fascination with fiber and fabric has continued to evolve through the years.
