Tante Clara's Christmas Pantoffeln, revisited, brought back from the brink of destruction...
Here they are. I think I've finally figured them out. Tante Clara's pantoffeln. She made them for all of the kids and grandkids- nieces and nephews too. Every year, that woman probably made 60 pair of slippers.
Mine, well, they're a little too squared of at the toe. Hopefully they'll round out when I sew the sole on.
I have a couple of pair that I've kept, as Tante Clara passed away at least 20 years ago.
They're definitely well worn, that blue pair. The brown I kept "pristine" so I could really look at how they were pieced together. The pink pair with the cutie flowers were a gift from my sis, years ago.
So, we'll see how it goes. Not making any promises, but hopefully will get good enough and productive enough for Christmas gifts.
Just a quick post today- a wave from the old smokey homestead, as the Las Conchas fire is around 100,000 acres to the southwest of us.
See ya 'round the (smokey and slippery) corner,
