These granny square slippers are on their way to my mama right now! They're felted, soft, and comfy. I'm so glad she likes them - this is her second pair!
(I tried them on, just to make sure they were nice and comfy.)
I am not the best crocheter...even granny squares are a bit of a challenge for me...so I decided to copy the style of the granny square slippers using simpler, faster, single crochet.
I made one big square in place of four of the granny squares, then two that are the size of a single granny square...and I sewed them all together.
Once I got them from Tallulah, they ended up looking like this:
And once put flipflops in them, tied them in a pillowcase and washed them in hot hot soapy water in the washing machine, they came out like this:
I had just enough of the same yarn left for these, too!
I think I've got about 5 feet of the yarn left...that's cutting it close!
I'm working on a pair for Hubby now, in a variegated wool made of blues and browns. I'll post those when they are done too. As my friend Helen (Hi, Helen!) asked the other day, what have you got on your hook - or needles - these days? if it's posted somewhere, please leave a link! even though my skills are a bit on the low side, I love to see what others are making.
I heart wool,
