How to make these 'Doris Day' tie-on slippers

how to make slippers.jpgThis cheeful pair of tie-on slippers caught my eye while I was scouring the crafty blogosphere earlier. I thought they'd be perfect for pottering around the garden on warm summer evenings, and will keep your feet cosy indoors when the temperature drops. Most of all, they just look so cheery and cute -- and they're dead simple to make, too.

The 'Elle' slippers by Tissuepapers are a basic tie-on style, inspitred by the easy glamour of Doris Day. The pattern is here if you'd like to have a go at making your own.

    Could the outside piece be made of faux or real suede, cut lower and stitched onto the lining fabric to make a sturdier slipper? The suede would have to be low enough to keep the part that ties free.
