I looked at that link but could not find what I was looking for. The stitch looked like a popcorn or puff type stitch and the slipper looked just like a basic slipper...like she worked it in a square and gathered the toe and then closed part of the top and the back but was a puffy type of stitch rather than a straight stitch. She learned the pattern from her mom in Canada.
I've looked all over but can't find this stitch and I asked her, but she's older now and I don't think she remembers.
I found a website that has the slipper pattern I'm looking for...it's called Pioneer Heritage Shoppe...I don't know if I can post a picture here or not...but if someone can look at this website and knows about this pattern, please let me know. I'll be happy to pay for it.
I found these which look similar. They aren't really bobbles, but the pattern you linked to didn't look exactly like bobbles to me either exactly. I suspect if you really want bobbles you'll have to make your own pattern with them. You can take a basic pattern like this one and bobble it if you want although it may not fit the same way. http://www.sewonfire.com/pattern_che..._slippers.html
Thank you so much for all your help! I do appreciate it very, very much. These are about what I'm looking for...and possibly with bobbles on the one's she used to make with just one color. I do remember she made some like this too with stripes.
Thank you again!!! Have a good day :-)
Oh, I live in California too. I'm in Seal Beach, were are you?
