Summer Slippers

A couple of days ago I had posted on NBR’s Facebook page that I was curious with the latest craze in the crochet world, crochet slippers made with flip flops.  As promised I finished a pair and posted pictures below.

The crocheted piece of the slippers is made with 100% soft cotton. I have to admit they are lightweight and very comfortable.  These will make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas! Order a few in various sizes and colors for that last minute gift.  They come in adult and children sizes.  Prices:  $10 for Adult  $7 for children.  I will definitely have a few available for sale at Fourth Friday coming up in July.

Now for my fellow crocheters.  The pattern is from Make And Do Crew.  Here is the link for your convenience.  http://makeanddocrew.com/free-crochet-slippers-pattern-flip-flops-sole/.

These are my thoughts regarding the pattern.  The designer/pattern uses a size 9-10 (women’s) flip flop from Walmart.  I am using flip flops from Michael’s ($1/pair), women’s  S (6-7), M (8-9) and L (10-11).  Pictured is a size small.  I marked off 53 holes (stitches) 1/3″ apart and 1/4″ from the edge of the flip flop around.  The slipper came out great and snugs the foot.  I haven’t calculated the number in the size M or L, however will use the same gauge/measurements stated above.  The holes on the bottom of the slippers were nagging me.  It didn’t look finished to sell.  So I cut the stems completely off the round pieces and hot glued them back onto the bottom of the flip flop.

Have fun nesting ~ Robin
