    Another use for Log Cabin blocks!

    A little while ago I saw these really cute and funny slippers on Pinterest, made using log cabin blocks. I chased down the pattern and wasn't surpriced to find it was from one of my favourite bloggers, Ayumi Takahashi (Pink Penguin). Here are my first pair! I made the large version (there are three sizes in the pattern) and I plan to make more. I made the blocks mainly from scraps (Annika, can you spot yours??), linnen for the inside and a thicker cotton fabric I've been wanting to use for a while, for the "underside" of the soles. We have wooden floors so I might have to get that "anti-slip" stuff from the crafts store to put on the soles, we'll see. I guess I will let a guest try them out, as they are meant for guests anyway!

                Okay, into the bucket that one goes. When am I ever going to get finished? (Don't tell me to put a hole in the bucket, either!)
                Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                        Very cute and I spotted the fabric right away!

                        God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
                        The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
                        A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
                        And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

                          Thanks all! They were great fun to make. I forgot to say I put double batting in the tops as well, I just thought that would be cozier.
