E+M=Petitboo This may seem like unconventional math but it is true! E+ M patterns has been rebranded/merged with Petitboo Patterns! When I saw the amazing group of bloggers signed up for this tour, I just knew I had to join in. I've never had an opportunity to sew any E+M or Petitboo patterns but what better occasion than a blog tour?!?
When I looked through the entire pattern list, I was definitely torn. They are all so cute! I've never sewn any slippers despite the different ones out there so I decided it was probably time to try some. My daughter has been wearing some store bought 6-12 month snoozies for the last few years. They are finally getting too small despite her turning 4 in April. Petitboo has a number of slippers patterns but I love the look of the Winter Boots - Kid Slippers Pattern so those are the ones I chose. Plus lets face it, living in Edmonton, the winter boot slippers will get way more wear than any other style.
The winter boot slipper pattern is a great scrap buster project. The Tsum Tsum fabric was a small remnant that I got through destash and I had just enough for the toes of the slippers. Paired with the pink dots and cuddle fabric inside they make for a fun and cozy pair of girly slippers. This pattern was easy to follow and relatively easy to sew. My only complaint (which was completely my own fault) is that I had forgotten how much I despise the cuddle fabric I used for the lining. It shed everywhere and made the project more difficult than it should have been. If only i'd had enough white fleece left!
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Petitboo is actually a Canadian Company. I love shopping local whenever possible so I will need to add this company to my go to patterns. Go check them out for yourself!
