For Julia :)

I totally want a pair too, so in case anyone (Julia) also wants to make a pair, here's how I did it:
This is so easy! From boring socks to fabulous slippers in fifteen minutes flat! The hardest part is finding no show socks with a low enough cuff. They're like the ones made to go under dress shoes. I found these at Jo-ann on clearance. Walmart has some that are plain pink, green, or blue, and I think I saw some black ones at Target. They are easy to find in nylon, but harder in cotton. Just measure and sew the ribbon(I think elastic lace or something stretchy might work better for adults) on each side of the top of your slipper to create the dancing shoe look. Then sew your flower or bow on the side. (I made a pair for Laura and put the flower right in the center of the ribbon at her request, it was cute that way too) 3-dimensional fabric (puff) paint in whatever design you like on the bottom, let it dry, and voila!
