After a long long time I felt content with my work. Almost all my experiments failed the whole of last week; therefore, this pair is truly a treat.

I just can’t crochet flip flops and sandals. I need a lot of practice to master the craft of making both the pair absolutely similar. So, it wasn’t difficult for me to decide what I have to do with the red and grey crochet threads that I have. I am personally a red and pink fan. Yes, I am that girly. Well, at least in terms of colors. Therefore, I saved these two colors to make something super cute. FInally, when I sat down to snap photos, I just did not want to stop. Yup, it is okay to fall in love with your work once in awhile. No, it will not count as you being haughty.

I should finally stop blabbering and move into the main deal.

I hope Ramadan is treating you well.

In this extreme heat, fasts can be a little tough. However, the reward is also bigger.

Because of the weather, I was planning to buy very light materials to crochet summer friendly shoes for babies. Not that it is going to prevent them from taking their shoes off. But well. One can only try one’s best. If you have babies in your family, you will know what I am talking about.

Recently a customer specifically asked me to make some very light slippers for her niece. So I finally ordered cotton crochet threads, If you are following me on facebook, you must have seen those pretty colors. In the beginning, I thought crocheting with thread will be quite easy. All I would need is just using three strands instead of two. I assumed, it won’t be much different from the double knit yarn I used in the past. But, I was wrong. Making shoes with thread is a little tricky and took me more time.

I made these slippers using anchor ball thread. Anchor ball thread is quite shiny and has a slippery texture. Furthermore, I used a 3.5 mm hook because that is what I used previously when writing the pattern. But let me tell you, my project turned out to be wobblier than the project I made using DK yarn. When I was attaching the top to the upper, it kept slipping from my hand. Furthermore, I used a bigger hook so the stitches aren’t that close and does not look that neat. Nonetheless, I was able to make these slippers.

The one very important thing I learned is use a smaller hook. Shoes must be sturdy; so the stitches should be tight.  However, if you can’t use a smaller hook, crochet very patiently and try to keep your tension tight and constant.  Moreover, when sewing the parts of the shoes, use as many pins as you require. I used very less pins to secure the top in place and went straight in. The material is slippery and slight movements can change the positions of your parts. Take your time while sewing. Also, take your time while doing the whole project. Be patient. I have noticed untidy stitches are more obvious when you use thread. So work slowly buy work as neatly as possible. Last but not least, handle the final project with care. I just feel it ends up being quite tender.

However, the material is indeed quite good. So I would recommend all of you to crochet with cotton thread. I myself enjoy the feel of these slippers. Moreover, that shine makes it look quite fancy. You could easily pair it up with your baby’s fancy dresses for a special day. Or maybe,  you can make the perfect matching slipper for eid.

I didn’t realize, with the coming of a baby will come so many ideas.

Not that these slippers are any thing new. But, in my crochet journey, they are a  novelty.

When I first put my foot down and decided to design my own patterns, my first goal was to make it easy. I personally, had tonnes of trouble reading some patterns because of which I used to simply give up on the project. But well, that was a good thing because it motivated me just to go my own way and create my own patterns.

Therefore friends, I bring you a very easy, beginner friendly pattern for these cute baby slippers.

They are soft, cozy and stylish. Your little munchkin will rock it. In sha Allah!

I made one in blue. I also decided to make another pair with contrasting colors.
