I think they are a great gift item to give to women. They are inexpensive to make, quick to knit up and felt and great looking. I also took fabric paint and dotted and squiggled the bottom and made them slip resistant. One bottle of fabric paint did all 6 pairs I have done so far. I like the two toned slippers best. Thanks for all the nice comments, but a big thanks needs to go out out to the creator, Mindie Tallack on Ravelry.
