One of the first yarnbombs we made was a pair of elf slippers for a mailbox during the holidays. Mailbox feet became our most popular yarnbomb series, with everything from webbed frog and duck feet to monster claws. Everyone would ask, why should mailboxes have all the fun? And they’re right!
We designed these slippers to use bulky yarn held double and a large hook so they work up quickly enough to make them for all your friends and family. Or, just hog them all to yourself!
Skid around in your undies, or take precautions with anti-skid bottoms. Pre-made suede or anti-skid soles are handy to sew on, but I used glow-in-the-dark puffing craft paint for even more fun. Evenly cover sole with pinhead-sized dots and let dry.
The samples shown were worked in Knit Picks Brava Bulky. A substitute yarn is shown below.
