In pursuit of cozy house slippers to wear, I sewed up a soft shoe from a free pattern I found on the internet; soft denim, calico lining, applique flower and covered button to match. It is adorable I think, but not a good fit. Never give up says me! So I tried another pattern "Oma's Slippers," a crochet slipper which I think is very nice. See the result? I have made only one side of each of these...prototypes. Result? Another loose and goosey fit. What's up? Not to worry; simply size down the crochet needle, tighten the stitch and work it until proper fit is achieved. I'll try again. Friends and relatives beware; these could be gifts in the making.
