Before I show you the craft I did last week, (I know, I'm behind!) I wanted to show you a couple things I did this weekend.
I made this apple cake with my cousin. And I also bought the cutest dress from H&M.

Now back to the craft!
I decided to try my hand at making slippers by crocheting them. I had no pattern and was just going off the top of my head.
I knitted two rectangles about the height and width of the bottom of my foot. Then I knitted two really long rectangles for the sides of the slippers. I made them long enough to wrap around the entire bottom rectangle. Then I crocheted two toe pieces. After each row of the toe pieces I would skip chain one less until it was the shape I wanted it to be.
After all the pieces were crocheted, I took the long rectangle and sewed it to the other rectangle. Then I sewed on the toe piece and started weaving a piece of elastic through the sides so that the slippers would stay on my feet.
Here are my gorgeous (sarcasm) feet. haha but anyways there they are! I might play around with the pattern and adjust to make them better, but here's the first try. =]
Did anyone do anything interesting this weekend?
