[Me-Made-May 13] day 5

No garments today, but little accessories that will be needed for the hospital: I made matching slippers for my daughter and me. I know it’s a little twee, but hey, when she’s a teenager, it will be too late for that! It’s my way to say welcome to her 🙂 Both patterns were purchased and downloaded from I Think Sew. The pattern for the adult slippers is Priscilla Women’s Shoes and for the baby size it’s the Lilac Baby Booties pattern. You can see they’ve used the same fabric for both patterns, I didn’t go that far, even though they’re both yellow.

Patterns are well written and very well illustrated, plenty of pictures – and trust me it makes is easier to understand how these 3D things go together!

Oma house slippers – petits chaussons

Une petite rĂ©alisation au crochet, très rapide et utile tout de suite ! Oma house slippers de Tara Murray, disponibles sur Etsy. J’ai eu quelques soucis de taille, je n’ai pas de crochet de 6.5 mm. J’ai donc essayĂ©, dĂ©-crochetĂ© et recommencĂ© : je fais une taille 7, mais j’ai fini par faire une taille 11-12 avec deux fils de Garn Studio Drops Paris, 100 % Coton. Donc si je veux en faire des plus grands, il va falloir investir dans un crochet plus grand Ă©galement. En attendant, mes pieds sont heureux, c’est lĂ©ger, lavable et très discret – je peux me mouvoir sans bruit comme mon Chaton.

A very quick project to crochet: extremely useful! Oma house slippers by Tara Murray, available on Etsy. I had to start again because my gauge wasn’t right and ended doing 5 sizes bigger. I really need to buy a bigger crochet! The pattern calls for a 6.5 mm and my biggest is 6 mm. I used 2 colours of Garn Studio Drops Paris, 100 % cotton. My feet are happy, the slippers are very lightweight, washable and discrete: I can move around without making noise, just like my cat.
