                    CROCHET ARTS -BABY SLIPPER

Sole - Make 4

Round 1: Ch 20, dc in 3rd ch from the hook, 15 dc, trc in next st, 2 trc in next st, 10 trc in end chain. Working other side of foundation ch. 2 trc in next st, 1 trc in next st, 15 dc, 2 dc in last st

Round 3. sc around 53, Sl st into next st finish off

To join soles together:

With contrasting colour (cc) Sl St around to join the two soles together. I started at the heel as the join will be covered when the back of the sandal is sewed on. I also inserted a piece of cardboard between the two soles to make it less flimsy. Thinking now plastic may be better as you will be able to wash them. Something like an ice cream container would work well for this.



Front Straps (make 2):

I changed to a small size hook here
Ch 20, dc in 3rd ch from hook, dc across. Finish off.
With contrasting colour sl st around
