Crocheted Slippers for Frugal, Cute, and Quick Christmas Gifts!
Looking for a cute, frugal and quick Christmas gift to make? I found an adorable pattern for crocheted slippers over on Redheart. I made a little bit of an alteration to the border around the top of the slippers and instead did a picot border. These cuties take less than a skein of yarn. Actually you could probably get several pairs of slippers out of one skein. The trim around the border and leaf take just a very small amount of yarn.
I'm now on my second pair and since I loved the color combination of the slippers on the Redheart yarn site I am making another pair in that colorway now. But since this pair is a Christmas gift I wanted to crochet them in Christmas colors.
If you would like to make a pair of these slippers check out the Redheart yarn Cottage Slippers by clicking on this pattern. You have plenty of time to make a few pairs of these before Christmas!
Are you making any handmade gifts for Christmas? Please share! I'd love to know! What are you making?
