Manly Guys: Redefining Masculinity with the Animal Print Fleece Slippers

I’m always up for hav­ing a sewing buddy! This time, I teamed up with my mom.

Manly Guys Redefining Masculinity with Animal Print Fleece Slippers using Green Pepper Pattern and Jiffy Grip Leopard, Giraffe, Zebra Rainbow Print

A cou­ple weeks back while run­ning errands with my mom, I asked her to swing by the fab­ric store for some mate­ri­als. But lit­tle did I know that she would be shop­ping for fab­ric too! She planned to sew fun socks for my brother and his room­mates. Not only was this fab­ric she bought fleece, but it was also ani­mal print & colorful!

Who would’ve thought that guys wore or wanted such accessories?

Well, appar­ently they do and they love them! (Because of this, I decided to start the Manly Guys Series.) My mom told me that guys (cough…specifically my broth­ers) want these fun acces­sories and can’t find them in stores…and it’s espe­cially hard to find them if they have size 13– 15 feet!

I guess I can agree with this state­ment. My brother’s Christ­mas wish list last year did have fuzzy col­or­ful socks listed.

So this past Sun­day, we whipped out some col­or­ful ani­mal print socks/slippers! We used the Green Pep­per Inc. Poloar Slip­per F837 Pat­tern and were very pleased with the pat­tern, direc­tions, and results! This was the first time I ever used a Green Pep­per Inc. pat­tern and I would def­i­nitely use them again and rec­om­mend it for you!

I did the cut­ting and serg­ing of seams, while my mom did the cut­ting and embroidering.

She used Jiffy Grip for the foot­ball num­bers at the bot­tom of the slippers.

My mom zigzag stitched the Jiffy Grip foot­ball num­bers to the bot­tom pieces of the slippers.

The process went a lit­tle faster with my serger. Instead of stitch­ing the pieces together with a zigzag stitch, I serged the pieces together.

We were pleased with the results. The only issues we had were with the rain­bow zebra fleece. The fleece had a lit­tle more stretch than the other fleece fab­rics which caused the machine to eat the fab­ric a few times.

Now let’s see what the manly guys think!
