    My dear friends,

    It's somewhat embarrassing to admit, but Christmas is tight this year. I will be making bedroom slippers for everyone 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:
    * Easily personalized
    * 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
    * 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....

            I just wonder about the person that thought the whole idea up?!?

            My grandpa was a drill sargeant and used to have his troops wear kotex in their boots to protect their feet and keep them dry, but this takes it to a whole new level!
