CINTIAS Little Hippie Shop

$15.00
In her own words...

"I think the toddler slippers are my best item and most fun to make :o) I have one lady that buys them for her girls each year (3 years in a row now)I have to make them a little bigger each time and it is a real good feeling knowing you are making an item that is really useful, and that someone else is loving you work as much as you do. My pattern is designed to look and act like a slipper in every way but feel like a soft warm sock and stay on like shoes. I am very happy others even adults enjoy them. They make great gifts as they are all custom made to the size of your foot not US standards for sizes. All wool for them is custom dyed and hand spun by me on a drop spindle and then crochet into the Earth bootie style, and or the Hippie Jane style I have made up. I use math as I do not read patterns so making my own works good for these custom wool slippers. I make cotton and acrylic versions of these occasionally but most buyers seem to really love the wool ones so they are my biggest seller I sold 65 of them last Christmas season ;o) I do extra large feet for adults or odd sizes, as custom means you get what you want. I offer add-ons like flowers, bells, beads, and or charms sewn on. Non-toxic fabric paint added to soles making them nonskid, great add on for children! and I can make soles extra thick or doubled, add-ons are extra but most are .75 to 3.10 extra so still very affordable."
