I finished these a couple of weeks ago for Ellie.  

It's not quite slipper weather, but she was asking me to make something for her.  I thought these would be quick and easy.  Not so much.  I took the pattern from Sewing with Bits and Pieces by Sandi Henderson.  Ellie's feet were bigger than the biggest pattern size, so I had to draw my own pattern.  Then it was a lot more messing around then I expected.  In the book she does suggest hand stitching because of the small size of the slippers.  I found I could do everything on the machine, except the assembly of the lining to the outside.  Just couldn't manipulate it under the machine. 
After Ellie tried them on, I had to tack the lining along the seams, otherwise it bunched up.  Not my favorite project.  I even doubt Ellie will wear them much.  Not that I blame her, they kind of give her flipper feet.  Hah!
