Breast Cancer Survivor Slippers

I made these slippers for my friend who is soon-to-be a Breast Cancer Survivor. I used Bernat Satin yarn, color is called "Seashell Pink", it took 1 full skein (163 yds) and another 25 yds from a second skein.
The pattern is my "options" slippers where you can choose how you make the soles. I knit the tops, crocheted the bottoms.
The little pink ribbons were just some leftover stash yarn that I had. I used a size F crochet hook, ch 30, turn, slip st in 2nd ch and each ch across. tie off.
I then sewed the ribbon to the tops of the slippers.
I am pleased with how they turned out. We have a cancer center up at the hospital where my mother volunteers, I may make a few more pairs of these and donate them.

New "Options" Slippers

I am so pleased! I have been working on this pattern for about 2 weeks. These are called "Options" Slippers. First you knit the top part of the slipper, then you make a choice for the sole - you can knit it, crochet it, or cut a sole out of a pre-felted sweater! You then sew or crochet them together. These are super fast to make, super comfy, and fun.
I think these slippers would make great items for Craft shows, bazaars, fund-raisers, or even on Etsy, etc. as they are fast. (Yes, you can sell the finished slippers!) This pattern is available for sale here:
