What are you most proud of? How easily I was able to make the shoes, after I'd taken the Craftsy Sewing with Knits class. The first set I made (the sparkly green ones) were very difficult and turned out too small for the child I made them for - but she had fun putting them on her stuffed Dalmation. The second two toddler pairs I made after I took the first part of the Sewing with Knits class took about twenty minutes each and were really simple. Then I got really confident and altered the pattern to make a set for my husband (he's thrilled - hahah!!). We'll have lots of elves of all sizes running around our house this Christmas!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? i had the most trouble sewing the bells to the toes, mostly because I didn't have the right materials. If i were going to make more I'd be certain I had some ribbon to use to tie the bells on and would tie the bells on before I sewed the slipper bottoms on. I also had a little trouble interpreting the pattern because there are two different options available. I finally just marked out all the ones for the version I was NOT doing. That's probably more a function of my own deficiencies rather than a problem with the pattern though!
