CROCHET SLING-BACK SLIPPER PATTERN - FRESH OFF THE HOOK!

I wanted to make a pair of slipper-shoe-sandals, 
with lacey open work on the toe.
After a lot of swatching, I came up with a way to make 
the straps sturdy and tight enough for foot wear,
all on one round.
I'm very happy with the final result!
If you like to make a pair for yourself, HERE is the pattern!

I worked up two pairs quite fast.
The pink ones are cute!

The white pair is more stylish!
I made some pretty insoles for both pairs.


The pink- and white striped fabric with black pattern,
looks real nice in these sandals!
Fresh off the hook. No in- or out-soles yet!

Here I have applied different out-soles on both pairs.
With my sole-treatment, it's no problem with white soles.
But I do admit; I love the natural look of the Espadrilles cord-soles the best!

After all, white shoes does not always look very fancy, but
with the cord-sole, the pink seam, and natural linen (flax)-fabric
for the in-soles, I think maybe these are my favorites!
The white soles visible. Pretty with black seam,
matching the black pattern on the insoles!

MY NEW YO-YO SANDALS!

I'm not good at following up my blog! 
These fun crochet sandals with cord-soles,
I made weeks ago!
The sandal top are made of connected crochet-circles,
attached to a pair of my handmade cord-soles.
As these sandals are not possible to make without the soles,
the Sole-Tutorial is included in the pattern!
Find it all HERE!
Good and sturdy soles, made with
crocheted Lucet-cord. 

Lovely to walk and wear!
So comfy!

I took my sandals for a trip on the beach!
A lot of sand in the fabric and the cord-soles!

Looks nice on tanned legs!
