Chic Slippers with Ruffles and Stuff

Hello everyone! I’m Disney, from Ruffles and Stuff, and I’m so delighted to be back as a guest on Somewhat Simple!
I’m sure we all are missing Stephanie terribly by now, but hopefully she’s too busy having a great vacation to miss us too much! :o)
Today I’m going to share one of my favorite projects that I’ve done:
Chic Isotoner Slippers!

My husband makes fun of me because I love these little Isotoner ballerina slippers (or “granny slippers”, as he calls them!). I’ve had some pink ones for years, and I realized that I had no business leaving them plain, when I could be putting pretty fabric flowers on them! So, after a full day of looking for one of the missing slippers, I set off to work!
You can get Isotoners at just about any department store, and they also sell an off-brand at Walmart for $6! Nice!

1 I started by using a seam ripper to take off the bow. Then I cut out four petal shapes (the large peach flower is from this tutorial at My Mama Made It) in three different sizes from peach silk, ivory cotton, and gold tulle….

2. Then I laid the petals on top of each other, starting with the largest and ending with the smallest.

3. I folded the flower in half and stitched once in the middle, then folded it in half the other way, and stitched again, to make an “X”. (I also got this method from My Mama Made It)

4. And threaded three champaign pearls in the middle each flower….

Then I repeated the steps for the other slipper, and stitched them on the front of the slippers!

And now your feet will be nice and chic!

And they would make a great last-minute Mother’s Day gift!
(not that mom should ever be last-minute!)
Thanks so much for inviting me, Stephanie!
And please come by and visit me anytime!
