Little Elf Slippers

The Christmas season is upon us.
It's time for cinnamon cookies and hot cocoa, prancing reindeer, snowflakes and jolly "Ho Ho Ho's!"

My little guys needed something woolly to keep their chilly tooties from going frigid while keeping with the spirit of the Holidays.

What's better than felted Elf slippers for Santa's Little Helpers?

Jake loves hugging his brother, by the way. This photo is unbelievably priceless. :)

Project: Felted Slippers by Midnattsol 
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool, 1 skein of "Leaf Green" & "Plum Heather"
1 skein of each color will make two complete "toddler slippers"
Needles: size US10 straights

The boys loved slipping these on themselves and strutting around like the good little Santa's Helpers that they are.

I did have to bribe them with little M&M candies to stand still long enough for these shots!

It's imperative to use some sort of glue or suede fabric on the bottom of the slippers because felted slippers are very slippery on smooth surfaces. I did little fancy "Ho Ho Ho's" and wavy scribbles on mine. It will take a couple of days to completely air-dry.
Now on to elf ears? 

Have a very happy Thanksgiving Day from our family to yours!
