My son loves slippers but he only wears the ones that hook on between your big toe and middle toe (These are very common in Singapore!). We decided to make t-shirt slippers - refashioned t-shirts ! I've made 3 pairs so far, and I'm planning on making two pairs each per family members so that at least we still have one to wear while the other's in the wash! Yeah, they are washable!!
[Update in 2014 - I have put some extra tips to this tutorial here]
Note: This project was inspired by 小石正子 who showed me how to weave the slippers . I've made a few adjustments! Our ancestors also weaved sandals :-)
|(a) Straps (b) Getting the string ready|
|Made with 2 different t-shirts. The strap was made|
from nylon string and t-shirt sleeves.
|I flipped the extra string from the weave all the way to the|
front and crocheted all round it. This is my fave pair!!
