Slippers and Scraps

I feel bad about putting crochet projects on my blog without having a pattern to share as well. But this is the case. I really struggled to figure out how to do the soles and tried several different patterns I had found. I ended up using one that worked but cant remember where I found it. As far as the top of the slippers, I kinda just did my own thing by seeing how others were done. I would share with you how I did them but I honestly don't know what kind of "together" stitch I did. It just worked and I thought they were too cute not to share.


I really wanted to make a baby shoe that would work for summer instead of the bulky ones I make for winter wear.
I had so much fun with them, I ended up making more! I gave a pair to a friend and put the others in my Etsy shop.

Later, I found alot of little tiny balls of yarn at the bottom of my yarn stash. I usually save these to make small flowers or bows. But I decided to make a little scrap hat with them instead. I started by sorting my balls of yarn from the smallest to the largest. I used the smallest to begin and went from there. I just started with a magic circle, double stitched 12 in the hole and so on. If you crochet, you know what to do next. These really are "one of a kind" you could never do two the same unless you did some serious counting.

I think it turned out cute with an Urban style. I wish I had a baby model because I would love to see this thing in action.


After I finished, I noticed it goes good with the little slippers.

  2. Adorable!. When you crochet, keep a notebook and pencil by you and write down what you're doing after every row. I knOw it's a pain but it makes it easier to recreate the pattern

  7. Absolutely adorable. I've yet to make slippers, baby sized or for adults, but they are on my list of things to do. I often just make things up as I go along and never, ever can remember what I did. Sometimes it is fun to do that rather than follow a pattern.

    As for blogging and social media, I say just do what feels right to you. I enjoy blogging for the inspiration and the friends I've made. I don't bother with all that other stuff.

    Take care and have a great week. Tammy
