Currently my sons second favorite movie, after the LEGO movie of course, is Monsters University. He loves it, and he loves Mike Wazowski. So I understand where the Mike Wazowski part of this project came from, but I don’t understand where he came up with the slipper part of this project. One day he just started asking me to make him Mike Wazowski slippers. I thought it was an interesting request and didn’t take it too seriously at first. Especially since my son refuses to wear any article of clothing that I ever make him. But after multiple mornings of me asking my son, “What would you like to do today?” and my son responding “I wan’t you to make me Mike Wazowski slippers.” I knew he was pretty serious about this project, and that it might be something I make that he would actually want to use. And I was right! He is in love with his slippers. And his sister was so in love with them as well that I had to make her, her own coordinating pair just to stop them from fighting over the slippers. These have been a big hit at our house! If you have any Monsters Inc. fans at your house I suggest making a pair or two of these.
First, Trace your child’s shoe.
You also want to cut out two triangle per slipper for the ears. You want to place them down in the middle of your fleece and minky fabric. You will sew a line across the top. Then you flip flip it inside out to get your finished top of your slipper.
