Dec 2, 2013: Yardage note: Although both Knit Picks Brava Bulky and Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky are both labeled as number 5 bulky yarns, Wool-Ease is much bigger than Brava Bulky and will require nearly twice as much yarn as the pattern calls for.

Dec 11, 2013: Updated with explanations for some standard terms. No major changes.

One of the first yarnbombs my sister and I made was a pair of elf slippers for a mailbox during the holidays. Mailbox feet became our most popular yarnbomb series, with everything from webbed frog and duck feet to monster claws. Everyone would ask, why should mailboxes have all the fun? And they’re right!

This pattern includes instructions for slippers in shoe sizes kids 3-7, women 5-12, and men 6-11. I designed these slippers to use bulky yarn and a large hook so they work up quickly enough to make them for all your friends and family. Or, just hog them all to yourself! Pictured colors are Rouge & Canary, Cornflower & Orange, and Peapod & Fairy Tale.

Additional materials: Tapestry needle, stuffing, optional soles or puffing craft paint or liquid rug backing for anti-skid bottoms

Risky business: Skid around in your undies, or take precautions with anti-skid bottoms. Pre-made suede or anti-skid soles are handy to sew on, but I used glow-in-the-dark puffing craft paint for even more fun. Evenly cover sole with pinhead-sized dots and let dry.
