If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

Foot Seams

So, I've seamed the bottoms of the Red Riding Slippers. This is a bit of a trick, since I don't want the seam to be lumpy right on the bottom and I yet I still want it to look good. (Even though it's on the bottom of the foot.) So I grabbed the very outer edge of the stitch and seamed it up that way.

It looks ok, I think. Not bad looking at all. And you can't feel this seam at all when you're wearing the slipper. I tried it, and believe me I was really trying to feel it.

I seamed the other one up the same way.

Now they're looking more like slippers, right? Next I needed six buttons for the upper. Basically you make a tube of the leg and then sew it onto the bottom. So I searched my button stash.

Can you believe I don't have six matching red buttons? WTF? How is that even possible? Oh well. I guess I will have to make a trip to Joann's.

Darn it.

How did the kitchener stitch work for you? These were a fun knit and I think they'll be great gifts. They definitely look on trend.
