This week one morning, my little girl ran out of bed towards me, telling me she was "sooo cold!" Her little bare feet on the cold floor was not helping.... I felt a smidge of guilt as I looked down at my warm felted slippers.....then it occurred to me that I could crochet a pair for her!
I had a really good look for an easy to follow pattern and one that was size adjustable.
I settled on the Minni slippers pattern from the Tuuma&Toimi blog as it's construction was nice and simple.....it starts with a adjustable ring and works in the round, then back and forth till you get the length of the foot.
Then I added this bow to each, which made my little girly girl smile.
She's smitten and now like the bunnies from last week, I have a list of orders from the boys...minus the bows.
And guess what? Remember the gorgeous Cape from my wish list last week....Louanna from NZ Green Buttons had already made one for her daughter last year, and she kindly sent the pattern to me this week ( along with some gorgeous postcards of hers )
I think I might need to make that Skeinz order....
or maybe I'll win it here?
And since winter has well and truly hit, here are some other slippers you could make to keep your own tootsies warm..
And if that's not you're thing how about these...
Both patterns are by the same lady, infact check out all of her patterns here.....they're all just as lovely
