Hello Slippers

Yesterday I made a pair of slippers. I found this fabric when I was down in Portland last. I fell in love with it and my Mom was nice enough to buy me a small piece. The pattern is from Simplicity. They went together really quickly. I finished them in an evening. The Hello Kitty fabric is a flannel. It’s super nice and cozy, perfect for the coming winter.

Purple Kimono Washi

She has a purple kimono and a bright patterned obi. She has a red blossom in her hair. I think she turned out quite well. I had a great time making her. I just need to find something to make her stand up. In the photo it is just luck she stood up.
