Blogtoberfest Day 15: Lazy Days Skirt #4 and Knitted Slippers

The last of the Lazy Days skirts for Isabella using my Heather Ross fabric from Corrie. Tomorrow I'm planning a little embellished one for a little girl to have her birthday soon..

The last of the birthday presants for my Mum, a pair of knitted Mary Jane slippers. She is ALWAYS cold and I thought these would be great around the house.

This pattern was so quick and easy to make, I think each shoe took me about an hour and I used 2 balls of Patons Inca 12ply yarn and I added a little crocheted flower in Tangerine. I modified the pattern and knitted the base to 9" before starting the decreases instead of 7.5-8" and it fits my size 9-10 foot.

Tomorrow on Blogtoberfest: The final Lazy Days skirt

Oh, yes! I've been making mitts, maybe I'll start making slippers as well.
Thanks for the idea!

I love this skirt. The colors are great together and I love the hem. You've inspired me. The slippers are fun too!
