All the trimming :)

Today we will work on trimming the slippers and finishing the little straps.

Here we go!

Do 31 single crochets so that you are now on the other side of the toe of your slipper. On your 32 single crochet you will pull up a loop. 

Now go do your other slipper. Only when it says do 31 single crochets only do 19, then pull up your loop. You want your straps to go out toward the outside of your foot not both going in one direction, right?! Other than that directions are completely the same!

Apparently overcoat and suit buttons haven't changed much since the 1930s. I grabbed these out of my pot of gold stash and they just so happen to have been copy written in the 1930s!  

Tomorrow I will show you how to make an adorable little flower to go on the toe of these. So if your sick of crocheting you could definitely leave them like this but let me tell ya they are even more adorable with the little crocheted flower on them. AND you could totally use the flower for other things like headbands, hair clips, hats, necklaces...oh the possibilities are endless! 

Leave your questions in the comments section. I assume you all are getting along ok!?

Love and Hugs,
