FO Friday: Slippers, Hats and Flowers!

I've had an extremely productive few days.
I whipped up these slippers in a few hours, but am still debating their color. I used Paton's Classic wool, dyed with Kool-Aid by a couple of young cousins who thought every color under the rainbow would be cool.  Everyone in my house thinks they look like fruit loops. What do you think?

fruity shoes!

I also finally finished the sewing on a pair of baby dino hats. Both of them are going to friends who are having babies in March. I also have 2 craft shows in March, and I've been working on flower stretchies. My flower headbands went over fairly well in the fall, and someone suggested I put the flowers on a hair elastic. Hopefully both of them will do fairly well this time also.

My bf has been home for a few weeks- YAY- and he brought me back a pocket watch! It's from Germany, and it makes me feel really cool, with the chain hanging from my pocket. Isn't it pretty?

  3. I'd say more like Fruity Pebbles. How fun that you got a chance to dye with your cousins; I've been meaning to do that with my horde of nieces and nephews for a long time. Though I guess it could end up with some crazy colorways!

  4. I love Froot Loops, so Froot Loop slippers? Are amaaazing in my book! (And I love that pattern, I made myself a pair of them back in October, and have been meaning to do a second pair since.)

    Also, the baby dino hats are the cutest, I love the bright colours and spots and spines. And your pocket watch is awesome. :D
