Remember these lovely bow slippers?
Well I love them and decided my sister would probably like a pair as well. She lives in a flat that has wooden floors throughout and she does love to slide her way around it so what could be more perfect that wooly slippers.
I wanted to make her something more tailored to her tastes and when going for a walk around Holme Pierrpont was suddenly inspired by some Daisy's, Rheanne's favourite flowers.
I thought about getting some yarn dyed in the colours of the grass and Daisy's. I ruled this out as the slippers would end up randomly distributed and wouldn't necessarily resemble Daisy's.
I decided I would make the slippers green with a flower on the top. I looked at the boucle I had and I didn't have enough to do the whole slipper in chocolate brown but decided I would use this as the sole to represent the soil, the lighter shade could be the top soil, the green the grass and a daisy on top.
I didn't have any yellow wool, only acrylic so asked around my knitting group but they only had acrylic as well. It was suggested that I use a big yellow button, genius!
Aren't they brill! My only disappointment is the obvious stitching around he sole. I had to use one of the boucle yarns and whichever one I used it stood out on the other one. I couldn't do a lot about it so just had to go with it.
Rheanne loves them, I'm really happy with them as well. Thanks again to Jem for writing this wonderful pattern.
