There is nothing I like more than a nice hot cup of coffee by the fire on a stormy morning like this one, and no morning would be complete without a favorite pair of slippers, either. So when I happened upon this inspired crafting book in at the Barrett Memorial Library, I just had to share it with you, my loyal readers.
Killer Slippers and How to Make Them gives you detailed, step-by-step instruction on how to make a variety of creative slippers, including the frangipani slippers (affectionately named "frangi" and "pani"), slippers that look like potato sacks called "the Tubers," elephant slippers called "Babar" and "Celeste," swan slippers, housefly slippers, and of course, as the cover indicates, tugboat slippers.
(As regards the cover, however, I found the photographer's choice of a leg model very curious - the man they chose has surprisingly hairless ankles with some sort of rash and then VERY hairy knees.)
If you're feeling crafty and would like extra-cozy feet, get yourself to the library for some killer slippers!
