Something New to Make for Christmas Gifts!

My dear friends, I find it somewhat embarrassing to admit, but I will not be getting an annual bonus this year and Christmas is tight.

Therefore, I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below:

How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:

You need four maxi pads to make a pair
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part
Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most aesthetically appealing)
These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself

and no, I didn't really make these, but aren't they a crack up? Happy Crafting!!
