If these fit you, you shall be my wife.

In other words, I really adore the comment sections below my posts. Often they are a source of very interesting ideas.

Like, for example, there’s this Crochet Slippers Tutorial that I once wrote. And just recently I noticed my friend Drora suggesting that it could be fun to turn those slippers into miniatures.

I fell in love with that idea instantly.

And this is what I made.

Tiny and cute, if I may say so myself.

I thought the mini slippers would look lovely as Christmas ornaments too.

Hm, what do you think?

As I mentioned, I used my Crochet Slippers Pattern to make them. The original pattern only needed a little bit of tweaking and simplifying.

If you’d like to give this tiny little project a try too, then I hope this pattern for mini slippers will be helpful. The pattern uses US crochet terms. I used lace weight yarn and A/0 (2mm) hook…

Round 1: magic ring – ch 1, 6 sc

Round 2: work in spiral, do not join rounds with slip stitches, mark first stitch of each round…
2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
2 sc in all following stitches,
[stitch count: 12]

Round 3: 2 sc in first stitch of previous round,
1 sc in following stitch,

*2 sc in following stitch,
1 sc in following stitch*,

repeat *…* all around,
[stitch count: 18]

Round 4: 1 sc in each stitch [stitch count: 18]

Rounds 5-7: repeat Round 4 [stitch count: 18]

Row 8: 1 Sl stitch in following stitch,
ch 1,
1 sc in 13 following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Row 9: ch 1, turn,
1 sc in first stitch,
1 sc in all following stitches
[stitch count: 14]

Rows 10-17: repeat Round 9 [stitch count: 14]

Fold the last row in half with the wrong side of the slipper facing out and join the two halves together with slip stitches. Finish off and weave in the ends.

To create a border, attach a yarn of different color to the slipper opening and crochet a single crochet stitch into each stitch all along the opening. Finish off and weave in the ends.

Also, you can use a fabric stiffener to make your mini slippers look neater. I did do that.

My collection of crocheted ornaments for this year’s Christmas tree seems to be slowly coming together. There are more of colorful little decorations to come, so stay tuned.

Have a very lovely week, dear friends!

Love,
Petra

    Hey, I LOVE these tiny slippers, SO CUTE! They made me immediately think about the preemie babies in the NICU’s around the country. I cant crochet to save my life, but i thought i would throw out the idea that someone make these and donate them to the wee ones in the NICU who are limited to what they can wear and are often still very small when they get to go home. Just a thought. They make wonderful little ornaments and could easily be done in colors to symbolize “baby’s first christmas”. Thanks for the great idea!

    I’m going to see if I can find someone with much more crocheting talent then I have to see if I can get a pair made little smaller. I lost my daughter in the 20th wk of my pregnancy and I would like to make a pair the size of her footprints and hang them on the special tree we have for her! Very cute.
