Crochet House Slippers with Leather Soles

by tolmema on November 9, 2012

It only took me months, but I finally figured out how to create crochet house shoes that attach directly to a leather sole!

I am looking for a pattern to do pretty much exactly this! I want to make them in cotton as summer-weight shoes for my toddler (she’s too young for hard soled shoes, but she’s outgrowing the soft soled ones, and they’re solid leather anyhow).
