The simple design of Espadrillas, is my great inspiration designing crochet slippers.
Espadrillas are originally simple handmade canvas shoes with rope-soles, produced in Spain for hundreds of years (And other places world-wide, only named differently).
For these slippers I had in mind the classic US ones, which they call Toms, the brand-name. All their designs have this famous diagonal cut across the toe-piece, and this slanting line is what I wanted to achieve with these slippers!
You can make your own Toms!
|Fresh off the hook! No in- or out-soles....yet!|
Basic Pattern HERE
|Tailored and fabric-covered insoles.|
|The slanting line clearly visible.|
I can tell you: Making stitch diagram for 4 sizes of the toe-piece,
left and right foot, was not easy, but great fun!
|Final finish! Ready for street-wear!|
|Looks quite like Toms, right? Only prettier!|
|I love these shoes!|
|Waiting for these lovely summer-days, |
just so I can wear my new Espadrilles!
