|I crocheted these over the weekend. I don't know why, or where it came from, but I just thought, "I want to try crocheting some Minion slippers." I figured a basic slipper pattern just made in yellow and blue, with a black stripe, would work. Then do some eyes like you would for a hat. I used the Fluffy Bunny Slipper pattern. (A free Ravelry download.) For some reason; I thought it was this pattern, which is for a child. But... they did come out on the smaller side anyway. So.. they will still fit an elementary school aged child. (I am sending them to Pine Ridge.) A friend saw them on facebook and wants to pay me to crochet some for her daughter for Christmas. :) I was going to try knitting a pair, too. See if she likes those better. I had an idea to make an "Angry Birds" version, too. Wouldn't be too hard. This is how I did the eyes: |
w/ brown, magic circle, 6 sc. join. FO brown, attaching white.
Rnd 2: ch 1, 2 sc in eah sc around. join. 12 sc
Rnd 3: ch 1, 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next sc around. 18 sc. FO white, attaching grey.
Rnd 4: ch 1, 2 sc in first s, s next 2 sc around. Join, fo grey, leaving a lengh to sew onto slipper with.
W/ yarn needle and black, make a french knot in the middle of the brown, for the pupil. Or, work first round in black.
I think next time I will definitely just do the first round in black and then just skip the french knot.
