Canvas Slippers

This was my first attempt at making a pair of slippers. I always buy slippers from the store, so I just figured why not try making them? It’s sort of hard, actually. They came out sort of lopsided and in different sizes. Hah! But you can still tell that they’re slippers. Going to have to refine my technique.
