Hey... My great grandma used to make these for me when I was a kid.  They are so cozy and super easy to make.  They are made out of four granny squares, three small and one large. The link I used for the pattern is:

They are super simple and a great begginer project.  Note:  Make the weave tight, or they'll get too baggy. Oh... I added the flower myself.



PEACE

Jessy

Okay Dewbaby, don't worry.  I'm here to help.

Dun Da Daaaaaaaa!  Super Stitcher to the Rescue!

Nah just kidding.

Okay so the toe part you got.  Now look, if you flatten your slipper at this point the open end (or heel area) is in the shape of a square.  That square-hole could fit one small granny square, correct?  But instead of stitching the whole small granny square into the hole, like you did with the toe end, you are going to take two small granny squares and stitch half of each one into the hole. 

Match up the corner of one small granny square to the corner of the square-hole closest to the toe of the slipper.  Stitch the small g. square to the large g. square along the two sides that make this corner.  Tie off.

Next, match up the corner of one small granny square to the corner of the square-hole that is at the back of the slipper (i.e. the heel of the slipper).  Stitch the large g. square and the small g. square together along the sides that make this corner.  Tie off.

Weave in the thread tails and voila! you have a cute pair of slippers.

I hope this helped.  If it didn't, I'll try to figure out a different way to explain it.

PEACE

Thank you for the help. I had figured it out after looking at the pic. I gave them to my niece she was ok with them but wanted a slipper that didn't have holes like granny squares do. I will take a pic an post asap. TY very much.

Those are great!  Hey you know what... I was thinking also how to make it so your toes don't poke out.  I think I'm going to make a pair with granny squares that lack the chain two spaces (except in the corners of course). I mean that I will replace the chains with double crochets.  That should work.  I'll post pics when I try it.

PEACE
