Winter peach test run

Added Sep 24, 2011

Riga, Latvia






These slippers are based on Winter Peach flats pattern i found on etsy. I have an idea of using this for some christmas presents, so I made a test pair, how the pattern goes. I had no interfacing, so I just skipped it and used gray denim and quilted lining. The instructions were good and the whole process took me about 2 hours of really lazy sewing. I’m pretty much USA size 10 or 10.5, but I used size 11 and they are still a wee bit too short for my foot. Maybe it’s just me. ? Anyways they are super comfy and I love them allready!

So a few alterations I’d make next time:
change form of the sole a little
Use a bit bigger seam allowance for inside peaces of the shoe
Try to make them identical :D

Material Notes

denim, quilted lining, thread, a hook and eye for closure

    I like those. And if anyone gave me a pair for new year (perhaps in some goofy pattern) I would be happy :) Good job.

    i just got the same pattern about a week ago. I too was thinking about making them as Christmas gifts. Thanks for the heads up on the size. I am a US 11.

      As I live in europe, I’m not good at USA sizes. I think the bes t way to know is just to try out.
