So, since catching the crochet but back in July, I decided I would make all of my pressies for Xmas.  Thanks to the darling for her tutorial posted here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0

The only things I did differently are that when I got to the straps on the female versions I chained the amount between the sides and then continued the hdcs around the next row.  I also single crocheted around the outside to give them pizazz.  I also used puffy paint on the bottoms for grip.
These aren't all the ones I made, but just the ones I got pictures of:



Those pictured:
Red and Blue male pair is for BIL in Red Sox Colors (double strands of Red Heart)
Double blue mail pair for dear ol' dad:  Vanna's Choice Yarn
Purple women's Pair for me sis:  Main part is Lion Homespun, accent is Lion Microspun (I think)
Blue women's pair is for the lovely woman who birthed me:  Main part is Homespun again and microspun again.

I also made two more womens pairs in two shades of sage green (TLC Essentials, don't know the colors)  for my aunt and female cousin.  I made three more male pairs for my uncle and two of my male cousins.  My uncle got a pair in Vanna's Choice in mustard yellow.  The other boys got pairs in brown/blue red heart, and green/cammo red heart.

After all this crocheting I really came to understand what it is like to make the same thing out of different yarns, and how they can change the characteristics of the finished project.

Sorry about the long post, but at least it isn't picture laden. Cheesy Cheesy


Edited to add:
The beautiful flowers on the mary jane slippers came from a pattern from our own Sammimag.  You can get the pattern at http://www.ibrakeforyarnhooksandbooks.blogspot.com/

i totally know what you mean about doing the same pattern with different yarns, i made these mary janes for EVERYONE! Smiley (i've only been crocheting for 3 weeks so this was easy peasy) i must have made like 7 pairs in 2 days! i used a bath mat cut into hearts for the soles to make them anti slip.I love the way you put a lighter color on the edge i'll try that on the next pair i make, but this time they're gonna be MINE!

those are great.  I have made 3 pairs so far.  I am going to make one tonight/tomorrow for my friend who is about to pop.  She always complains that her feet are cold in the hospital, and the slipper socks they give her are always HUGE on her (she has teeny tiny feet)  So homemade slippers from her best friend, what could be better?
