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?


I'm joining up with Tami's Amis FO Friday-- check out more lovely stuff here!


  1. That looks like a nice slipper pattern. It does look very colourful.

  2. Yes, fruit loops, absolutely. Very cool watch - how thoughtful!

  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

  5. I'm voting Fruit Loops! Very colorful and very cute. The pocketwatch is wonderful. You are lucky in your BF.


I love knowing that you stopped by!
