Crochet Slippers

crochet slipper

The greatest thing about these crocheted slippers (other than the fact they are sooooooo easy to make) is that they actually stay on your feet.  I’ve had some that slide off my feet.  They make a great gift when you need just “a little something,” and you can use up your left-over yarn.
