So about 2 weeks before Christmas, I got a wild hair and decided I was going to crochet my kiddos and my cousins kiddos all slippers for Christmas.
Yes. Crazy. I know.
But...I did it! I was crocheted like a mad woman, but I finished. I got this fabulous pattern from this Etsy store. Actually, I bought 7 patterns. (I had a little clicky finger.) Her patterns are wonderful. Easy to read. Pictures to help. Very well written.
They crochet up really quick and done with 2 strands for the shoe part. Then you can decide if you want straight (and continue with 2) or slouchy (drop to 1).
I modified the boot cuff a little on these (the ones I gave my cousins girls) so that it ruches (ruched? rouched?) a little. On my kiddos, one requested straight (think Uggs) and the other slouchy.
I also added a cute little flower in each of the girls favorite colors from leftover yarn. (I have a huge stash of yarn.) I keep trying to use it up buy knitting and crocheting, but then I come across a new project and buy more yarn. Help! Its a vicious circle and I'm stuck!
The girls LOVED them. So did all the other women in my family. In fact, my cousin and aunt ordered a pair. :) Hobby Lobby is still out of this grey, but I keep looking.
