This contest has ended. Congratulations to Mary Sue W. who is the lucky winner! It may be hot and humid now, but in a few short months the evenings will start getting chillier. Normally I would either layer wool socks or try to patch my holey slippers, but no more! This year I will be making my own Bedtime Boots to keep my tootsies toasty. What kind of slipper will I make? Well, I'm not sure - there are so many options. I"ll probably go with a classic quilted cotton. This double layer of fabric will be cushy and cozy, and is a great opportunity to work with some fun novelty fabrics. Below you can see a pair we made with our new Vintage Made Modern collection from RJR Fabrics, which is being released in September. I could also use a double sided fabric like fleece or a lovely, soft sherpa to make my boots. This method is super quick and easy - just a few seams and your done! The fun thing about these boots is they can be made out of anything - even some old sweaters that you have. Wash those wool sweaters to create a felted material and make some recycled boots. Notice how we used the ribbing of the sweater for the cuffs of the slipper? This giveaway has ended.
