If you knit or if you can do a knit-to-crochet conversion, there is a really cute pattern at:

I'm trying to teach myself to knit with this pattern.  I'm not very far and it appears so far that I'm just destined to be a crocheter.  Anyway, just thought I'd share.  Roll Eyes

i have been looking for a crochet maryjane pattern for hours, but have comeup with only knitted patterns (i knew i shoulda kept with the two sticks)!!!!

anyways...this is what i found....http://www.geocities.com/gossgirl2/abislippers.htm

it's a pattern for a very bassic crochet slipper to which one could add a nice strap and button(and maybe a cool ribbon interwoven too...like the one in spazz/dithmar's gallery...i love those!)

hope this helps.

I came across this tutorial on a google search:

http://www.delicat.ca/journal/archives/2004/09/crochet_mary_ja.html

They are corchet, and I think it would be easy to customize this pattern to whatever shoe size you wear (adult or child).  If anybody has luck with this method, please post a pic!  I'm too busy with work & school and the ten projects I already have going to start on these, but I have the tutorial bookmarked for future reference.

Lotus666 Thanks for the pattern of slippers that might work as maryjanes adding a strap I did look and look before too and could never find a simple slipper that I could convert. And the one for kids I could not make bigger than child size.  I am new to understanding directions so I can't really tweek patterns to make them work yet. But can wait to give that pattern a shot. Thanks again

I'm trying to make myself a crocheted pair of these:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12662.0
I think they look more maryjane-like than the martha ones? I'm just crocheting a long rectangle with some decreases towards the end (working from heel to toe, so decreases towards the toe end). I sort of measured it on my feet by making a row that only goes halfway up my foot on either side (because I made my first one WAY too big  Undecided). Then just try to follow the knitted version directions.
The straps are already crochet, actually. And if you need a tutorial on how to do double or triple chains:
