he wore sneakers....for sneaking

cee is always giving me a hard time--in a joking way--about how come i don't make him anything...aside from the scarves and multiple hats, that is...so as a bit of a snicker, i made him these:



sure they're gorgeous---eeep!---but are they practical, you ask?

well...they fit, he could--hypothetically--wear them, and he even put them on so i could snap a pic....


and i'm sure if it were the dead of winter and all his socks were in the wash or being caninely chewed, that he would consider putting them on and wearing them...in the house...at night...while everyone else is alseep. he was a good sport to put them on in this summer heat and humidity, but his humiliation didn't last long. yes, that's one of the furry kid's legs in the upper corner, casey is a daddy's girl, after all.

now he won't bug me about making him anything for a while.

I love the sneaker slippers! My mom used to make those for us--I still have a pair in my dresser. :)

Welcome to the Fiber Arts Bloggers ring, and happy surfing!

Super! I love the detail of the stitching to emulate the grommets around the holes for the lace :)

Where did you find that pattern? I am looking for one.

Well hello there Anonymous, thanks for stopping by. The pattern...I believe it came from a booklet called Family Slippers by Red Heart Yarns. Just one of those little mini booklets you see hanging off the shelf where the yarns are. There were a few other cute ones included in the booklet, it's worth checking out. I've seen it pretty much everywhere you can buy yarn. This slipper pattern can be found in one form or another in many places, I noticed Mary Maxim has a kit available that has 3 different sizes including pattern and yarn for a really reasonable price. I also have a mini baby bootie version of it in an Annie's Attic booklet, also widely available. Hope this helps! Thanks again for stopping by!
