EASY TRAVEL CROCHET SLIPPERS

Barefoot Girl...

Yes, I admit I am happiest barefoot...

my feet are my thermostat...
once in the door my shoes and socks are off and my feet are naked...
however, every now and then...
especially when travelling during cooler weather...
a pair of slippers are absolutely essential...

AND I always prefer.... SHOES OFF onceyou cross the threshold...

So, literally two days before we took to the road...
I whipped up these

EASY, QUICK TRAVEL CROCHET SLIPPERS....



the pattern is very easy and quite quick to make up... and best of all no sewing... apart from hiding yarn ends and attaching the perfect heart... or embellishment...

Attaching the perfect heart at an angle and off centre made it easier to identify which slipper went on which foot... you know LEFT or RIGHT foot...  I know I am getting old... 

ANYWAY.... 

I only jotted down a few notes re pattern prior to my travels... 

and only yesterday decided to write the full pattern out and re-check it AND share it with you...   hope you enjoy...  Ciao, ciao...
