One of the first yarnbombs my sister and I 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! This pattern includes instructions for slippers in shoe sizes kids 3-7, women 5-12, and men 6-11. I designed these slippers to use bulky yarn 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!) Each pair takes just 2 skeins of the main color in Knit Picks' machine-washable Brava Bulky, which comes in a wonderful color palette. Pictured are Rouge & Canary, Cornflower & Orange, and Peapod & Fairy Tale. Additional materials: Tapestry needle, stuffing, optional soles or puffing craft paint or liquid rug backing for anti-skid bottoms Risky business: 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.
