I just received a very exciting email! The publisher of Crocheting Clothes Kids Love has decided to offer the pattern for the Skip to My Lou Slippers as a free download (just click on the download link in the Craftside post).
These slippers are a great project for practicing different crochet skills. Colorwork in the striping on the sides, surface crochet when applying the trim, and crocheting in the round for the toes. The Bow Buckle is a fun embellishment that could also be used on hairbands, garments, or attached to a band to make a bracelet.
Who says pretty shoes are just for parties! She will feel as special as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz in these "Ruby Slippers"! If you make them, I would love to see you post a photo to the ravelry page for the slippers!
