Pretty Little Slippers

Pretty Little Slippers
Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled

I love my slipper from Francine Toukou so much that I had to find out how to make them for myself! Found some great places to learn and I am going to share them with you.
1.) Friends and Family- talk to your family and friends you might be surprised to find out that someone loves to crochet! People also love to share what they know, so it might bring you closer to them.

2.) I found a youtude video of a women crocheting an adult pair of slippers! This was very helpful because I did not know the difference between a basic single crochet and a slip stitch.
3.) I bought a simple Adult Mary Jane pattern from Hectanooga at Etsy. It is for a beginner and looks like a difficult pattern but only uses the single crochet, chain and slip stitch.
The first time I used the pattern I only used one strand of yarn but I found that if you use two strands of yarn at the same time you get the chunk, thick, warm slippers that I fell in love with!!!
I hope everyone is enjoying 2010!!! One of my new year's resolutions is to try new things!! I hope you will give this a try too.
