I am making an attempt to think of more boy projects.  A friend requested that I make her son some crocheted slippers.  I like how they turned out. And the fact that they were SO easy - and took about as long to make as a hat - makes them my favorite project so far!  As always, let me know if you want a pattern!

Those are super cute!
I would love a pattern if they are pretty easy.  I'm kind of a newbie level crocheter.

Ditto - I love these, and I know a little boy I could craft them for!  A pattern would be lovely!!  They look like little clogs or crocs - so cute.  The color of yarn and button embellishments are so nice together.   Cheesy

Thanx guys!  These are SUPER easy to make - and they work up quickly because you are using two strands of yarn instead of just one - which also makes them super cozy Wink.
