Bunny Slippers

Well, I checked online several times over the past month to try and find bunny slippers. I was wanting something that was reminiscent of the ones of the '50s, but couldn't find any that looked like that to just buy outright. I did find a vintage pattern for sale, but I was more on the lookout for a free pattern. ;) I came across several interesting patterns:

I was thinking of just adding ears to those, but then I decided to go with this one and tweak it a bit:



This is what I ended up with:

Mz Terry, thank you so much! I know that I have never been "normal", but I must say that I see so many things from so many talented people and I just marvel at it all and want to do all of it with perhaps my own little twist;) Also, I firmly believe that necessity is the mother of invention and that's usually what ends up being the case with me. The bunny slippers were a result of me not being able to find anything like the picture I had in my head. Ya know? Anyway, thank you again and you just say the word and I will totally whip you up a pair (didn't take me very long..less than a day with many interruptions:) fo' free.
