boots giveaway

I can't say that I am a slippers kind of gal at all. I tend to pad around in bare feet or woolly socks most of the year in the house. Well its starting to get a bit chilly now in the evenings and I was thinking about socks and then my thoughts turned to silly socks and the result was these booty style numbers. I've made several sizes now, following the pattern directions but making minor adjustments here and there until by the time I made the last pair today I threw the pattern and instructions away and did my own thing. I still want to make some minor adjustments but I'm not far away from making a batch for my Chubby Mummy shop. The question is "what do I call them?"  are they boots, slippers or socks or something else?  Ideas will be much appreciated and as a mark of thanks I am going to give away the 3 pairs in the photo. Thats 3 lucky winners (or not so lucky if you don't like them !)   So  ... the give-away will run until Sunday evening 20th Sept 6pm UK time  and all you have to do is to comment on the blog and tell me what you would call the boots !  If you have a preference on booty .. let me know that too!


The red pair are BIG!  and will fit an XL adult size (12" toe to heel)  , the green are child large (8.5" toe to heel)  and the pink Infant large (5.5" toe to heel)

you should call them sloots - a cross between slippers and boots!!

Or how about "blippers"? Again, a cross between boots and slippers!

How about Chubboots? That way we know they are boots from Chubby Mummy. These are seriously wonderful. I love the colours!

I thought blippers but Diane got there first!

However, Dorothy's suggestion triggered the silly part of my brain and the word Chubbles has come to mind and makes me smile, in fact, it is going to make me smile all the way down the Lorton Road where I am heading right now!

Sunny hugs from Cumbria to my old home. Sorry not to reply to your email yet, Must Try Harder . . .

PS: my size 6 Chubblies are 10" long . . . {smile}

I think those boots look fun. I like Ruth's name for the boots. Sloots sounds fun too.

Hi peeps - thanks for the suggestions so far. Brenda has suggested Kozys as a possible name too.

This is going to be hard to choose!
