Slippy Slipper Soles

Before I start I have to start by saying Callie slet through the night last night! No medicines to make her sleepy and I slept all night without waking up too. Wow do I feel rested, my first nights sleep more than 7 hrs uninterrupted sleep. I hope this continues... Now on to the previously scheduled blog post.
Callie has these slippers that we really like. She used to wear them a lot but now that she is standing and walking they are too slippery. They dont have any antiskip soles just straight fleece so she falls quickly. She wears her shoes a lot but sometimes it just seems to be a bit much to have her shoes on all day. So I problem solved and decided to sew some leather soles on her slippers. This was my first attempt as sewing leather. Since it was to attach it to an already made slipper I just hand sewed them on. They turned out really good and she has been walking around in them quite successfully. They are not as antiskid as her rubber soled shoes but they still work.
That leather sewing experience was so successful that I am going to try my hand at sewing a new bag with a leather bottom. I ordered another bigger piece of leather that will arrive this week.
