I kept these slippers pretty simple, but they'd also be really cute modified for a button or decorated with a knit flower. I hope you have as much fun knitting these as I did designing them! Gauge 5 stitches = 1 inch in garter stitch Finished Size Fits medium size woman's foot (shoe size 7-9)
sewing needles (just regular old sharps - nothing small like quilting needles or big like embroidery) white thread (I chose polyester for added strength) plastic bags of all types - grocery bags are easiest, but you can mix and match. The thicker, more opaque bags will produce a thicker braid, while thin, more transparent bags will produce thinner ones. Try to get as many colors as you can - my basket is made almost entirely of white bags with very small amounts of color, and I think it would look even nicer with some full color bags mixed in.

Whether you have kids or not is irrelevant. Sometimes you have a party and don’t have enough chairs for folks, or sometimes you host a board game night or movie night at your house. Throw pillows work. Floor cushions are better.
they are all over pinterest.... (i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one.
