I had been eyeballing some cute little house slipper patterns on Pinterest. They are crocheted to the bottom of a pair of dollar store flip flops. This saves time on crocheting a sole and makes great slip-ons to run outside. Besides that, they are actually cute, dontcha think? This was my first attempt.
I could not understand most of the patterns I read and tried to follow. (I'm a lefty so I have to read all the patterns backwards). After several attempts, I got rather aggravated and closed the computer lid. Though I used ideas from other patterns, I combined some together and made up a pattern that worked for me. I am not a pattern writer so I hope you can understand my instructions. I'm not selling it, I'm sharing it for anyone who would like to attempt the task.
Size don't matter and I didn't stitch count.
Ok,so they are not perfect,
I actually messed up on these by starting in too far on the sole as seen on the left foot. This made the left slipper slightly smaller and it made a difference.
If your an experienced crocheter, You can change the pattern up to your preference.
*Grab a Pair flip flops- Cut off the straps and pop out the hole plugs.
*Using your smallest crochet hook (I used a C2), Starting at the center back of the heel, insert your hook and pull a loop of yarn through (from the top) and slip stitch all the way around. Join into the beginning hole. Chain 1.
Rnd 1-4: sc around, join, ch 1 (do not turn). Now you have 4 rounds of single crochet.
Find the center point of the toe end. count back 20 stitches down the side your working on, and place a stitch marker.
Now that I have accomplished this pair, I think I will make a pair with a color I like better. I'm not a fan of purple but this was just a cheap yarn I found laying around. It worked up great but I'd rather use the "I love this Yarn" brand. Its a little softer and easier to work with.
You can sell what you make with this pattern but please do not sell the pattern. ITS MINE.
If you make a pair of slippers using my pattern, I would love to know how it turned out for ya. Comment below or email me a photo. Thanks!!
