This is one of the smocked slippers I'm working on. I will do these again, but I'll do them a little differently to tweak some things I don't like about them. I found the pattern in a very old issue of SB. The instructions for the whole idea really frustrated me. I finally just did it my way, then found another smocking plate in an old issue of Creative Needle.
I should have the other slipper finished this weekend and will post final pics. I may even do a tute on these after Christmas. I still have a lot to do before Christmas. If you want to know how to do these though, send me an email.
