Crochet Slippers Gone "Rogue"

Happy Thursday everyone!

Oh I am so excited to show you the new slippers I just made!

I purchased a great slipper pattern on Etsy and then had FUN tweaking it on my own to finish them off with a larger strap, crochet poppy buttons and a higher back to make them more "me".

I used yarn from my stash to make them which feels doubly productive.  Summer time projects are the best time for me to make room for all of the new yarn I want to try!

Ta Da!

I just LOVE them and cannot wait to make more!

R-Chee was there supervising my progress through every step of the way.

This is what they looked like after I finished the basic pattern before going "Rogue" and adding my Melissa Embellishments! :)

I do not need straps or flower buttons on mine momma!

I just need 4 plain ones!

What do you think about lime green?

Can I have 4 lime green ones?

Can you put pointy toes on mine so they can be elfy?

I want to match the magical gnome Auntie Melanie made for us!

Sure Archie!

I would love to help keep your pug feeties warm this Winter with some magical elfy slippers.

I just ordered some new GreenTea merino/cashmere superwash yarn that is coming in the mail from Lion Brand any day now.

I will get started on yours asap! ;)

How FUN!
