Looking for a quick crochet project that uses up leftover yarn? Looking for a cute present idea for adults or kids that you can make your self? These slippers are easy to make, great for beginner crocheters, don’t need lots of yarn and make a great present.

It’s been a long cold winter in my part of Western Australia. We’ve had the wood fire burning every night and I’ve had my warm woolly socks on. Finally as the weather is warming up a bit (we’re not used to being cold!) I’m wearing my little slippers instead. Cute and comfortable, they’re just the thing for cool evenings while we wait for summer. 

I used the Chloe slipper pattern by Mammachee, much as I love free patterns, it was worth the few dollars this pattern cost for the cute design and the well written instructions, I had several attempts at slippers that didn’t turn out so well and I’m blaming the not so great pattern instructions.

Looking through my yarn stash, I had about half a ball of beautiful Irish tweed yarn left over from making this scarf for my boyfriend and about the same amount of a soft dark blue bamboo cotton mix. Just about enough for a pair of slippers.

The pattern included a little decorative flower, looks super cute added to the strap, with some very pretty vintage glass buttons for a little bit of bling.  I love the way it turned out, the colours look great together and they are so comfortable, I need another pair for when these are in the wash!
