I love these sweet little slippers with a Selbu star on the toe. The ribbon pictured is optional and is woven in the bottom of the slipper, and tied on top. Knit with Rauma Strikkegarn.
CAUTION SLIPPERY ON HARD FLOORS. You might want to add something to make these slippers less slippery for toddlers or wear them on carpet only.
