Picture of Kids Knitted Slippers
After I started wearing the slippers I made here: http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Slippers/, my 5 year old granddaughter told her Mom that she wanted slippers for Christmas.  I decided I would make slippers for each of the 4 grandkids which will be in our home on Christmas day.  I spent 12 hours trying to come up with my own pattern.  Total failure, so I came did a Google search and came up with this pattern:  http://www.aokcorral.com/projects/pj212_childrens_knitted_slippers.htm.  The pattern its self is free, but you would need to pay for the pattern for the animal faces.  I had another idea in mind, so I just created the slippers and created my own decorative face decorations.  This is how I did it.

Step 2:

This is a simple pattern, you need to know how to cast on, cast off, knit, and knit 2 together.  I used the large size on the pattern to fit my granddaughter’s feet.  When I got to the end of the pattern I was confused, until I followed the directions and took the last stitches off the needle and folded it in half as instructed. 

Step 3:
