this is one of my proudest projects to date. i would be lying if i said it all went smoothly. but it was worth it, they came out better than i expected. i was pretty worried about the fit since my sister lives across the country and i had to do some guessing. they ended up being a little loose in the back so i sewed in some thin elastic, cinching the slipper tighter around the foot, and after that the fit was great!
