crafting with grandma - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Slippers

Yesterday Josiah and Caleb spent time at my house. One of the things we talked about was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Josiah asked; "Grandma, have you ever watched the Turtles?" I said, "No." He asked; "Then why don't you like them?" I said, "Well, because while some girls may like the Turtles, I always thought; 'Why are the Turtles ninjas?' It didn't make sense to me and sounded silly. If I was a boy I probably would have thought they were cool, exciting and fun." To which Josiah said, "Definitely!!" Now Josiah thinks I need to spend time watching the Turtles with him so I can see how cool, exciting and fun they are; even though I am a girl!

So, last night when the boys were getting ready for bed, Josiah showed me how he could still wear the car slippers I made for him a couple years ago (I did make them kinda big). Then he asked if I would make him Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Slippers. Of course the answer is, "Yes!" 

As I browsed Pinterest today looking for pattern ideas I found a great image of Ninja Turtle slippers . . . but no pattern. I continued to look and found another great pattern for Minion slippers - with a pattern which you will find at this link - which I think would work really well for making Turtle slippers . . . and of course, I'll also make Minion and Purple Minion slipper, but will probably keep them for Christmas.

I am a huge "fan" of warm feet. If my feet are cold, all of me is cold, so making fun slippers for my grandsons is definitely something I'm in favor of doing! I'll post photos when I finish the slippers . . . of course three pairs!
