Bunny slippers for Nancy

I had a commission to replace a pair of much-loved slippers that had worn out. I found a pattern, and started off with my dishcloth cotton. I finished the first slipper, and realized that it would easily fit me, rather than my 4-year old neice. So, it was back to the drawing board. I knit another pair, and these came out too small. Finally, like Goldilocks, these came out just right (I hope).

Mostly my own design - knitted in dishcloth cotton. I need to do something about the soles; the leather soles I bought are grey which I dont think looks so great with the white and pink slippers.

Bunny slippers are so cute.
If you decide you don't want to use the gray soles, Yarndog carries a product shaped like an animals paw print that sticks on the sole and provides some grip. They might work on the slippers. Never used them but they looked interesting for future slipper projects.

Those came out so well! Much nicer than the original too.

She will love them and they are much nicer than her first pair especially as you knitted them for her x
