I live in a large house with three other girls that is covered in hardwood floor. While I love having hardwood floors, we can never seem to keep them completely clean because all the traffic. I often find my feet getting a little too dirty from walking around barefoot in my house. Because of this predicament, I wanted a very lightweight and comfy slipper to wear inside that was quiet and felt almost as if I was wearing nothing. So I found the Dorothy Ballerina Slipper pattern and some spare, lightweight fabric and whipped these together pretty quickly.
I used a soft rayon for the blue and white striped outside, a gray t-shirt material (100% cotton) for the inside lining, a felt layer in between the lining and the sole, and a plastic/rubber slipper material for the sole.
