I loved the bunny slippers in The Happy Hooker, but with my love of all things HK had to change them. So here you go...

I ran out of black floss so only one has wiskers at the moment. But I love love love these and had to share them before I finished them completely.

Wow thanks guys for the wonderful repiles! If any of you make them you have to show them off. I want to see them. I'm also working on Batz Maru and Keroppi. I have a feeling those aren't going to be as easy of a mod.

I have been rendered unconscious by the cute!

Can you elaborate a little on the mods you made? I was going to make these my next project and now I want to even more!


PS: I would LOVE to see the Badtz Maru ones when you're done, he's my very favorite and there's not near enough Badtz Maru stuff...

verso - The only mods to the original crochet pattern I made were the ears. I didn't write it down (bad me) They were done in Hdc with like 2 decreases per row to make a triange. I think I started out with 6 stitches or something like that. I just kind of eyeballed it. I then sewed the ears on. (this is all before sewing the entire slipper together). Then I made a template of the eyes, nose, and bow out of this stick on paper my mom uses for machine embroidery. I stuck the eyes and nose on the slipper top itself and embroidered right over the paper so I could get perfect ovals. Then I stuck the bow template to some felt I had. I cut out the bows and backstitched all of the details. Sewed the bows on and voila! I sewed the wiskers on after the entire slipper was assembled so they could hang over some of the seams.

After all of the hassle I had with the embroidery, I would just do it all in felt. I just didn't have any yellow or black felt at the time and didn't want to wait.

I hope that helped!

What type of yarn did you use? I'd like to make a pair for my friend, who is a HK fanatic. They look awesome!

I used Lion brand jiffy yarn. About 2 and a half skeins in white. wtih a J hook. They were a tad small for me and I have a size 8 foot (they come right to the back of my heel. So if your friend has bigger feet I would either go up a hook size or Add a little to the pattern. I doubled the yarn for the bottom sole part and used one strand for the upper sole and slipper top. Hope that helps!

Okay, I'm officially jealous  Wink  I love Hello Kitty and you did a fantastic job on those slippers.  I'm going to have to crochet myself a pair soon since the weather is getting cold and my dog ate my only pair of slippers last Winter.

Thank you! Oh you definitely need some slippers then, KatAutumn, Bad doggy. They really don't take very long at all. I think I only spent a couple of hours on them, and I'm a pretty slow crocheter.

Wow, your second pair looks even better than the first! I made a pair, but then I couldn't figure out how to do the ears right. Any suggestions? I did 6 hdc for the base. They came out looking too pointy instead of a nice equilateral triangle.

OOo I can help you with that! I wrote out what I did for the ears when I did the second pair. Although, right now I am very tired and am not sure where it is. I will post them tomorrow.

Emmalou- drink the koolaid...make the slippers. They are sooo much fun. But make sure you read the errata page first. There are quite a few mistakes in the pattern.

I just remembered to find that ear pattern. here it is...
I used the Lion brand jiffy yarn for mine so for the ears I doubled the yarn like I did for the bottom sole and used an I hook.

Ch 6
row 1- hdc in 2nd ch from end, hdc to end. (4 stitches)
row 2- Ch 2 turn, 2 hdc2tog (put the last stitch in the turning chain to keep a straight edge)
row 3- Ch2 turn, hdc2tog (put last stitch in the turning chain as before)
end and weave in the ends.

I hope that makes sense and works out. If not tell me. I'm just copying what I wrote down in my book. (It could be complete gibberish)
