I used pink pompadour yarn for the back part.. brown sport yarn for the front part.. and baby yarn for the top part.. These are soft, and hopefully sturdy..
Finished these yesterday.. been trying to get pictures to show the colorful top.. no luck.. sigh. the tops have flecks of pink, blue, yellow, and purple in them.. comes out white in the pictures.. dont have time to keep trying as I have one more pair in purple to make by the end of this week..
Here are two more pictures of the top and side.. close up..
I did plan on putting these up on Friday.. but somehow I never got time.. was busy both Thanksgiving Day and Friday with spending time with friends and alot of running around on Friday.. I thought I better get this done today.. I made these with pompadour baby yarn, which has a sheen to it.. these will last awhile.. as this is a sturdy yarn.. these particular ones are Newborn, up to 6 months.. a bit hard to do the heads.. since they are small.. but they are cute as can be.. smile.. here are close ups of both pairs..
I am now working on two pairs of Toddler cupcake slippers.. almost got the first one done.. pictures soon..
Well.. we got our first snowfall.. not too bad.. pretty as a picture.. smile.. nice to just sit at home.. drink coffee and do some stuff around here.. We got just enough to make it pretty.. but not enough to make it horrible.. cant complain..
I am working on newborn teddy bear slippers, two pairs of them for an order.. I got them almost done.. have one more head to attach and do the eyes and noses.. and I will be done.. should have pictures by Friday.. then off to 2 pairs of cupcake slippers for toddlers.. Guess this year is a slipper year for me.. lol.
So what are your plans for Thanksgiving?? We are heading to my best friend's house for dinner.. we do that almost every year.. nice to spend time with friends for the holiday.. and she cooks a nice meal too.. grin.. anyways.. time to head off to get my computer work done.. then crochet..
I have been working on orders.. orders and orders of slippers.. Finished the first pair of Knit Look Slippers (adult size).. and a pair of Football Slippers for Toddlers.. thought you would like to see pictures!!
I am currently working on two pairs of newborn infant teddy bear slippers..pictures coming soon..
Just in case you dont know.. you can sign up to get up to date notices of my blog.. and/or my Facebook page.
This is the Knit Look slippers.. I had to make my own topper.. as you can see.. it worked out!!
This is the Football Slippers, that I just finished.. I also included pictures of the front and back views.
So excited.. I cant believe they mentioned one of my items in the Buffalo Rising Newspaper!! They had a picture of my froggy slippers for kids and adults.. so excited!! I always love free advertising.. grin.. go and check it out!!
I have had a busy week so far.. just havent had time to come on the computer.. and when I do have some free time, I have been crocheting.. I finally mostly finished the Knit Look Slipper that I talked about in my last blog entry.. I thought you would like to see it so far.. front and side views.. I had a real problem with the top of the slipper.. the pattern called for a slip stitch fabric with a Icord chain in the middle.. after trying this for a couple of days.. I realized that I just wasnt gonna be able to do this.. my hands just wont let me.. so I make up a topper that went well.. I thought. what you all think? I still have 4 more pairs of these to do.. so glad I figured out a way around the problem.. this should make the others go easier.
I have started my first pair (have at least 5 to do in a row!).. thought you would like to see how they are coming out.. I like this color combo.. nice and colorful.. and it does look knitted.. this is a scan.. not a picture taken by a camera.
You can see the pattern here.. It is by Bonita Patterns.. they have alot of cute slipper patterns..
I will update you again on Friday.. I am sure by that time.. I will either be done with the first pair or almost done..
