Norwegian house slippers or elf boots...

From this: to this: to this: in record time. Comfy too!
Pattern - Norwegian House Slippers found here
(YouTube Folding tutorial - very helpful!) found here)
Yarn - odds and ends of worsted weight I had lying around.
These slippers are very comfortable and super easy to make - they have a kind of elf thing going, which I find eminently charming, but that's me.

You can felt little gnomes and sew them to the toes.

Gee, I have all this brown Cascade 220. A couple other colours too. These look much easier than the clogs, I was planning to try.

Ha, I am enjoying looking at your finished product! Now, if only I would actually get around to finishing my own...

Hope you're feeling better!
Those are much cuter after felting. I thought for a moment the meds were making you a little wonky. There is a similiar pattern to knit those on the knitting machine; might have to give it a try. My Fibertrends felted clogs lasted only a few months (same with my felted Fuzzy Feet slippers). I'm so hard on my slippers (I think it's the carpeting), so I need something quick and easy!

Oh, thank you for the link to the tutorial! That pattern caught my eye, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out the folding diagram.

Love your colors.

How have these held up for you? I watched the video, but I think until I have them ready to sew, I won't have a clue how to finish them, LOL. I'm wondering about the single sole though--I wore through my Fibertrends clogs in only a few months and those are a double sole. If they're going to wear through so quickly, I might just want to make something on the machine.
