The other day, as I was browsing through my old quilting magazines, I came across these totally adorable patchwork slippers designed by Ayumi (summer 2011 Stitch magazine). What can I say? I pulled out my gorgeously organized scraps right away and got to work.
Fun, aren't they? And the whole pair took only a couple of hours to make. Yay! for instant gratification projects :).
I had so much fun making these log cabin blocks, especially the hedgehog one. And I really seem to be enjoying this red/ gray color combo lately.
I used walking foot to sew the slippers together and I was quite surprised at how well it worked out. Even sewing through the non-slip slipper fabric was not such a big deal. It was sticking slightly to my machine so I had to pull and tug a little as I sewed but I kind of expected that.
Also, I used lots of Wonder Clips to hold all the layers together.
I did a little search online and found out that you can also buy this pattern here. I made a size M slippers and they fit perfectly (my shoe size is 6.5).
Wishing you all a very lovely weekend. Svetlana
