These are slippers that I made for my mom's best friend's son. The slippers are mens size 10. They are a gift for his 40th birthday. He served in the armed forces in the desert, but I'm not sure which one. These were quite the challenge to make. It took about 50 hours to complete these. The pattern was not the best, especially for a fairly expensive paid pattern. I think having it tested before being released would have really helped with all of the bugs it had. I don't want to completely diss the pattern because the concept is actually amazing. It just needed a bunch of extra eyes before being released. I had to rewrite a bunch of the instructions to get them to come out right. I would not recommend these at all for a beginner. You need to be able to work from the photos a lot and just be able to improvise quite a bit. My son now wants some, but I told him NO WAY! These are one of a kind. The sewing alone of all the little pieces about killed me. I can hand sew quite well actually but LOATHE doing it.
Hello there! It's been so long since I've been on here! I'm so happy to see it's still going, and looks to be going strong. Any way, I've been making berets for a few months now. I live in the Ft. Bragg area, and EVERYONE here is Army, so there's a lot of demand for them. I finally typed up a pattern for them. Got some friends to test. I had to share the photo of my friend's kid. TOO CUTE not to share:) .https://www.flickr.com/photos/97712210@N00/19190921084/in/dateposted-public/
