I had to travel to Colorado in June (and July) for work and visited a quilt shop in Golden (Golden Quilt Company). While there, I saw the cutest little Party Slippers made up and decided this was what I would make for the Blog Hop.
When I was young (I know, that was a very long time ago, but it seems like yesterday), my Aunt and Uncle would buy all of my brothers and sisters and I (there were 6 of us) a pair of flannel pajamas for Christmas. Mom and Dad would let us open up their gift to us on Christmas Eve so that we could wear them to bed - while we dreamed of dancing sugar plums. (Trust me, we didn't ever sleep much on Christmas Eve!)
My kids like to have "new" things to wear on Christmas Eve also, but we have gotten lazy and usually end up doing toe socks or fuzzy socks.
Because we live in Phoenix, this is the PERFECT Christmas Slipper:
This is the underside with the non-slip base
NOW for the GIVE-AWAY!!!
I have made up a kit for one lucky winner to make a pair of their own Christmas Slippers. It will have the Jason Yenter - In The Beginning - Winter Wonderland fabrics shown in the top pair (one fat quarter of each fabric), the slipper gripper stuff on the bottom, and the pattern. I will also include the little tips that were helpful to make these slippers great.
Just leave me a comment and tell me about your favorite Christmas Tradition. If you follow me, you may enter a second time and let me know you are a follower. On August 14th, I will randomly choose a winner so those who are behind in their hopping will have a chance to win.
Good Luck All!
Now, don't stop here, hop on over to check out what these other ladies have made!
