Well I have FINALLY finished my crochet maryjanes - my first completed crochet project ever and first time at making my own pattern too... I started them a good few months ago and have only just finished them now that I've had a decent break from Uni. Unfortunately, my camera's a crap so you'll just have to imagine that they are actually green (not blue) - hence the frolicking in the spring meadow bit  Wink

Covering my piggies view:


At the time I didn't know how to join yarn, so I made it all in one piece. That's why there's the little peep hole at the back, which you could probably close up, but I don't know how, and quite like it anyhow. The flowers have been sewn on, and the strap is sewn down where the yellow flower is too.

The pattern for these can be found here on the CrochetMe website.

Those are so cute! If you could post the pattern (or where it's from), that would be great.

BTW, if you don't want the bottoms to get all skuzzy, or you're afraid you might slip, you could sew a pair of suede slipper soles to them. (Try a Froogle search of "slipper soles".)

"I think what I learned from all of this is that the search is the most important part. Right? Like, when we found the cat, it had rabies. So the lesson is, when you're looking for something, don't find it. Because when you find it, it has rabies."

Thanks for all the nice comments! I will post the pattern ASAP, although it might take a little while coz there's a bit that I can't explain without having to draw some kind of diagram!

BTW, if you don't want the bottoms to get all skuzzy, or you're afraid you might slip, you could sew a pair of suede slipper soles to them. (Try a Froogle search of "slipper soles".)

Awesome! Thanks for the tip!!

Heehee... not a bad idea! Although it's currently winter where I am, so these are to remind me of spring!

I love them! About the hole in the back, couldnt you just sew it up or something? I dont think it would change the size that much.

Very cute. Personally, I like the hole in the back. Seems like it just makes it a little more unique and original with the hole.
