log cabin slippers = cozy toes


My feet are warm and snug in log cabin slippers, it's like having a little quilt for your toes! I used Ayumi's clever pattern from Stitch Magazine (Summer 2011). You can get a PDF of the pattern here. I'm a UK size 7 and have quite wide feet, I made the large size and there's a little room for wiggling my toes so feel super comfy.


I used the most beautiful Nani Iro binding from Miss Matatabi, which inspired my colours for the log cabins. For the soles I used Slipper Gripper, which I thought might be hideous to quilt through but my walking foot dealt with it no problem.


I picked out some of my favourite fabrics, in colours I love and those little Denyse Schmidt flowers in the centre make me smile.


Happy feet.

  5. Love it! My "spuds" (house shoes that look like my feet are sunk into baked potatoes) are falling apart, so maybe I need to book mark this pattern for reference!

  6. They look fantastic Lucy!! I love the fabric you chose, and it looks like your slipper gripper stuff handled going through the machine a bit better than mine.

  22. I made these for my sis a couple of years ago but they didn't turn out as pretty as yours and I struggled with the slipper gripper stuff.

  23. What gorgeous slippers. I already have plenty for myself but I think a few pairs of these would be so handy to have as guest slippers.

  24. Just catching up on the last week:

    LOL at the fabric fishing expedition, I feel like throwing fabric over my head sometimes too, and love the slippers.

  29. Those are truly the most beautiful slippers I've ever seen! You need to have a pair of slippers for your pair of slippers so you don't spill tea on them or get them dirty!
