I finally finished the second pair of slippers for my mom's Mother's Day present. Yesterday, my daughter and I went to the post office to mail them off. The post office has a machine where you can weigh your package, pay for postage, and print out the postage sticker. I think it's cool. And there's a really large mail box just for packages. Before mailing the package, I stuffed the slippers with pretty tissue paper, and I wrapped the paper around the slippers. I reused an Amazon box, but I wrapped it in brown paper with pink flowers doodled on it. I think the box looked really pretty, but I tend to go overboard with the tape! Anyhoo, the slippers are finally done, and on their way across the country.
I used two strands of yarn when I crocheted these slippers.
So here are both pairs of slippers. The Granny Square Booties are my favorites, but I also love the Plummy yarn I used for the loafers. I hope my mommy likes them. I also wanted to sew some mug rugs for my mom, but I think I'll wait and make her some patriotic mug rugs this summer. I bought a bundle of red, white, and blue fabrics a few months ago, and it needs to be put to use. I like making things for my mother.
