					                                    I made these slippers for my
                                 friend Brenda who is of Norwegian
                                             descent.                  Sassy Slippers

These slippers are perfect for the Bride
with tired feet. The thread color for the
ribbon and date can match the Bridesmaid
dresses.

I found this wedding design at Annthegran.
I reduced the design size with resizing
software, then added the date.

When I stitched out the rings and the doves
I used metallic threads to give them a little
sparkle.
