Made to Fit - Personalized - Novelty - Golden Yellow Furry Rabbit Slippers - Custom Order for Laura Curtin of EightBoardsFarm
|Etsy Listing #152976020|
They are the result of a meeting, via the Etsy Activity site earlier this year, when Laura Curtin mentioned how she much would love some Golden Yellow Furry Rabbit Slippers and asked if I could possibly make them for her.
(Laura and I have become firm friends since we first met (I think she followed me on Etsy, or it might have been the other way around! Think the relationship can best be described as a fine example of how Etsy works when crafters get together and exchange ideas and views. Laura has provided me with invaluable advice on how to tag, categorise and otherwise try to highlight the Cuddlies. I've yet to put ALL her advice into practice with ALL the other Cuddlies. It's on the "To Do" List!)
Thus emboldened, between us Laura and I have managed to produce a pair of Foot Warmers, capable of taking socks if required, that fit her specific requirements (American Man's Size 10). She wanted them over the ankles to the lower shin bone, whereas future models will reach below the ankle bone - with the same room for socks. The specially requested Golden Yellow Plush Rabbit Slippers have been delivered, fit her well and even have their own names!

The plush and lining are sewn separately and fitted together so the seams do not show - either on the inside or outside of the slipper. Animal heads - not necessarily restricted to Rabbits (they can be selected from any of the Toys available in the ColdhamCuddlies Shop) and the colours in which they are made can also be individually selected. Once the head is attached, each slipper is finished off with a satin ribbon edging with half inch elastic threaded through the ribbon. The bow on each slipper conceals the elastic fastening - which is sewn in such a way to allow for adjustment - be it expansion or reduction, thus allowing for individual ankle conditions.
There are already 2 further Custom Orders in production - which will be listed when completed One is for another Rabbit (in brown plush with a mauve lining and matching edging): the other is for a Panda slipper - in black and white, with a white fleece lining.
To meet the Made to Fit offer, when ordering, the following information will be required:
(1) Your normal shoe size.
(2) If possible, a drawing of each foot - to accommodate individual shapes!
(3) Measurement of each foot from Toe to Ankle OVER the instep arch.
(4) Width of foot from side to side, OVER instep arch.
(5) Ankle circumference at top edge of slipper - to accommodate any possible swelling involved.
Armed with this information, it should be possible for me to meet your specific needs!
Slippers can be made for Children, Ladies and Men - once all the above information is provided for each person.
