Crafty Mama

My Dear Friends,

Like many of you, Christmas is tight for me this year.
I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts.

 Please let me know your sizes. You'll most likely agree 
that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've 
included the instructions below.
How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads: 

You need four maxi pads to make a pair. 
Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part. 
The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top. 
Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part. 

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most 
aesthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are: 
* Soft and Hygienic 
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles 
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh 
* No more bending over to mop up spills 
* Disposable and biodegradable 
* Environmentally safe 
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags. 

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the 
nifty slippers for yourself.... 

Awaiting your response. It's crucial that I get the right size for each one of you.

Thanks Bets!

Since I live in California and it doesn't get that cold, just make mine out of panty liners.
Thanks so much! You are a doll!

I think you're onto something.

Can you make a string bikini out of tampons?

I'll take a size 9.5, wide. That's for the slippers, but come to think of it that would work for the bikini too.

The wide part, anyway.

Starwoodgal said...

You should sell them on Ebay!

That is funny!

Ellen said...

How about some stilettos on those slippers - at least I can look sexy in them.

I am with Ellen - I have heel spurs so I need the stilettos! Can I have mine with snowflakes instead of snow men? Thanks.

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

Aren't those so fun!!!! I made some of those years ago and it seriously was a huge hit....except for one of my friends...she totally took offens....she just needed to LIGHTEN UP! I ♥ THE WHOLE IDEA! Since we are still in the 90's...I will need something LIGHT...maybe you can come up with a thong....this morning while driving in my car...they were playing Christmas music and one of the songs was called "Here Comes Menopause" instead of Here Comes Santa funny...I THOUGHT OF need it playing on your blog...I didn't catch who did it...maybe I'll hear it again...Have fun makin' slippers!

tj said...

...Oh lord take me now, I have seen it all! lol... ;o)

...How 'bout those lil' thong liners with say a stiletto heel? I got a visual - so tres chic... :o)

...I'm with someone else up there about sellin' 'em on Etsy. I once saw mens briefs made out of beef jerkey featured on there. Supposedly they sold to Ted Nugent of "Cat Scratch Fever" fame - go figure... ;o)

...Very creative you are MPM!

OMG! Those are freaking hilarious! I've been wondering what to do with that 15 year old box of pads I have. This would send my daughter into seizures of laughter.

The best part being that as you're shuffling around the house, you're also cleaning. (can you tell I have a lot of bare floors?

Ellen said...

Now if you used Depends, could you make a pair of Uggs with them? Have you seen this site:

Anonymous said...

OMG why oh why would someone (Ellen!) send you to another crafts site!!!
BTW, make mine size 10!!! Love the decos!

Mary said...

God, you are hysterical!!! I'm ROFL.

Mary Ellen said...

I've been wondering what to do with the feminine hygiene products I all-of-a-sudden don't need anymore since the Great Menopause Fairy stopped by...

The problem is, with the hot flashes, I can't wear slippers anymore. What else can you make??

Hilary said...

What an absorbing concept! ;)

Daryl said...

WHERE do you find this stuff?

This is even funnier than the kid laughing


Egghead said...

Har har har! This had me laughing especially when I imagine my mother in law (who is prim and proper) in these.

The Glamorous Life said...

I am laughing right now just like when I was a baby and my dad would rip paper in front of me. And man I have a headache just thinking about those days.
