Crocheted Slippers

Hello! Hope you all had a great weekend! I'm using my day off to relax and to bum around the apartment.

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?

Love love,


  1. Those are the cutest slipper I have ever seen, and yet it looks so simple to make. I don't know how to knit, is it easy to learn? It looks relatively easy whenever I watch someone else knit! Though my sewing skills are rather rusty :P

  2. cute slippers. they look really cute but maybe adding a little padding to the bottoms would help.

  3. I love the color of these! So cute!
