Free Pattern for Crochet Slippers Using Flip Flop Soles from Make and Do Crew.
Make and Do Crew of this pattern calls them house shoes and I love that term! They really are with this flexible yet durable sole. I’ve done this using leather soles before but leather is a little pricey and harder to work with if you’ve never before. This is the perfect solution for anyone wanting to try something different or looking for a weekend project!
Guess who’s all getting these in their stockings this Christmas?! *wink-wink*
Tip – use cotton or wool yarn, not acrylic
UPDATE FROM THE CREATOR: Many of you have requested a printable version of this pattern. You can now purchase the pattern but the free pattern is still availble from Make and Do Crew. (And here’s the toddler version of flip flop slippers!)
The supplies are super easy to find and you’ll likely have most around your house, except the flip flops which you can get from Walmart or the Dollar Store. I’m a big fan of upcycling though so I made my pair out of a broken pair of flip-flops I already had at home! Win-win! You’re welcome Earth 😉
Honestly, I think this pattern would even work to make crocheted shoes to wear outside (don’t they look a bit like Toms?), but they’ll likely break down faster once they’re exposed to the rough and tumble streets.
• B /2.5 mm hook (I love this affordable set!)
• G /4.25 mm hook
• Approximately 120 yards worsted weight cotton (I used “I Love This Cotton” in turquoise from Hobby Lobby)
• one pair of flip flops (One size smaller than you wear normally. See note above.)
• 2 stitch markers
• sharp tool to poke holes in the flip flops
You’ll need to know:
ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
sk st – skip
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet
and how to poke holes in things..
