Not-so-Tiny Slippers

Mary-jane style slippers
One of my favourite patterns in the first Whimsical Little Knits is the Tiny Shoes, simple little baby Mary Janes with an I-cord strap. When the pattern came out, plenty of knitters seemed to like it just as much as I did, but some of them didn't just want to make tiny shoes. The question "could I make a pattern for Tiny Shoes for bigger feet" seemed to have an obvious answer: "no, the proportions are all wrong, they'll be much too wide and short." But, I'm nothing if not contrary, and once I'd decided that scaling up the Tiny Shoes pattern wouldn't work, it proved impossible to completely let go of the idea.
