By Lisa Gutierrez on 04/01/2008 **I thought this was obvious, but apparently not: PLEASE OH PLEEASE do not use any of my photos without my permission! I’m a nice person, so if YOU ask nicely, I’d make a consideration. Also, don’t post this pattern anywhere else. PRINTER-FRIENDLY version link at bottom! I’ve received many messages via Ravelry about these slippers. Crocheted Mary Jane Slippers (women’s large–9.5-10) Materials: worsted weight yarnH-hook2 buttonstapestry needleyou’ll also need some yarn in a contrasting color. First, start with 8 DC into a circle. see the little tail on bottom? after cinching, slst into the top of the first DC, ch 2. [See THIS POST, if you need more information about the beginning round.] This is what my piece looked like after round 4: Work 2 rounds even (NO INCREASING). Now, we’re going to be working back and forth in ROWS. Keep working back and forth over these 23 stitches for 12 rows. This is my half-way mark: Here goes! SC 24 times up the side toward the heel.

Sling Bag Tutorial - Part 1 I tend to have a short attention span when it comes to projects, that's why I like making a variety of things. My Etsy shop has an assortment of stuff in it for that very reason...I don't want to make the same style of the same product over and over! Bags are one of my favorite things to make when I feel like changing up the pace a little. I whipped up a few of these hobo/sling bags to put in the shop. Fun! It will look like this when you open it up. We are going to be very thrifty with our use of fabric, and use the cut out pieces from the straps as the pockets. Measure down from the top straight edge, nine inches. Trim off the rounded bottom. Cut a strip of narrow elastic, 8 inches long. Your pocket should now look like this. Do that to all four pockets. Now sew just the outer edges of the bags together. With RIGHT sides together, stuff one bag into the other. Sew the two bags together. Reach your hand through there and pull the bags right side out. Stuff one of the bags into the other.

You can find the SLIPPER SIZE, YARN and HOOK specifications at the end of this article !!! (To see more of my patterns, please visit my ONLINE SHOP!) I am an addict. An addict for crochet slippers. It all began when I saw slippers similar to these somewhere on the internet. I loved them so much I couldn’t get their tempting image out of my head. All I needed was a pattern. But because I am terribly, terribly impatient, I found creating my own pattern quicker than looking for an official one on the web. And since I’m no crochet guru, the pattern turned out to be really simple. Actually, these slippers might be the simplest slippers in the universe. Or not. But they might. This is what I did… Round 1: 5 ch (chain stitch); join into ring with sl st (slip stitch) Round 2: 3 ch; 7 dc (double crochet stitch) into the center of the ring; join with sl st Round 3: 3 ch; 1 dc into first stitch; 2 dc into each next stitch; join with sl st Row 14: turn (!)

Yoga Sock Pattern! I recently did a blog post to show off the Yoga Socks I've been making and promised to share the pattern with others, so here it is.... This pattern is really flexible and can be adjusted to fit many different size feet.I have very small feet (a size 5) so you may want to chain more in the beginning but remember that the fabric will stretch when you wear it, so don't go crazy! I added only 3 chains for bigger ones which fit my moms foot (a size 8). There is one thing I've learned after making several pairs of these socks and that is you don't want the socks to be too long. This pattern is worked from the ankle down, using short rows to create the space for the heel. Okay, here it is....and please let me know if you find any errors. You will need a small amount of worsted weight yarn and a 5 mm hook. Chain 32. Slip stitch to join, being careful not to twist the chain. Working the ankle: Chain 2, half double crochet (hdc) in each space. Repeat 5 times. Forming the heel opening: Working the foot:

Life As Lou :: Magic Boxes: A Life As Lou Online Class :: January :: 2008 Due to popular demand, I am doing a tutorial on the Magic Boxes I showed off in some previous posts. To begin, choose your paper. You need six sheets of matching paper (preferably a heavier weight). Outside: 6 x 11 3/4ths Lid: 8.5 x 8.5 4 inner boxes: 8 x 8 The only challenging part of this project is creating the lid and inside compartments. 1. 2. fold the tips of your paper in so that they meet at the center. Fold in all four sides, and then unfold. 3. This fold gives you the sides of your box. 4. I have also colored four triangles. 5. 6. Do the same thing on the other side. 7. Repeat this process on your 8 inch and 8.5 inch papers. Now for the outside. 1. 2. To put the boxes in, first adhere one to the very top right corner, making certain that you are flush with the corner of the outside paper. Adhere the next one to the bottom left corner, once again flush to the edge. Here are a few that I’ve made. transparency
