Knitted boots

Few months ago I looked  through UGG boots site, and I completely fell in love with knitted versions of UGGs. So I decided that I really really have to make myself a pair (original a bit expensive) and nothing bets new knitting challenge(:

I been googling, ravelring and stumbling in for a while… some I didn’t like, some didn’t have pattern, but I didn’t give up. Then on ravelry I found this beautiful slippers, exactly like I want, but pattern was in Japanese (even bigger challenge)… With help from lady from  ravelry forum and few hours staring at the pattern… I did it! They still need some improvement, but so far I’m happy with result. I manage to figure out how to attach proper sole, that I can wear them as a boots, not just a slippers.

So here is few photos….

Holly’s birthday present

In January we were invited to our friends farm for Holly’s birthday.

I decide to make her slippers, plus I just bought this pattern so was really itchy to try it. They were fun and easy to make, but as usual me running late, so I was finishing them in the car on our way to the party. Its explains my not so clear pics (:

Party was great! Beautiful place, lovely people and lots of yummy food… Kids played outside, running around and jumping on the trampoline. Then inside bigger girls help them to play musical statues.

 Holly opened her presents and bingo – slippers fit perfectly and she really like them.  They were on her feet  straight away.

What a fun day for all.

Size: from 8 to 2 (kids)

Price: R 100  


Another order…

Crochet slippers size 10/11 with leather sole.

I made them for Sasha’s school friend  Jolie. Her mom told me that she wears them all the time.

 So we were camping other day and her family was there as well. I saw her playing on the playground  wearing slippers(: Yay. 

Camping with style(: So cool to see her enjoying them so much!

PS – I love to make it special. Here is my last minute bag: crochet flowers, buttons, felt and boys crayons…Last touch to make someone smile. X

 Size: 8 to 2 (kids);    Price: R130 with leather soles




I  love girly stuff: flowers, ribbons, buttons….. I got this pattern  from the web last year. Very simple and easy to do. But I decided that its really needed little touch of my girliness (:




I crochet them with Elle Gold Chunky (100%courtelle)  and flowers with Elle Cotton Fields (50%cotton/50% dralon) bought from our local wool shop. I made few of them for order from my friends (they are my big supporters. Thank you). Few pair I made with a leather sole, its not slippery and looks after wool. Longer wear(:

Size: from 3 to 7

Price: R 100 (without leather soles) and R150 (with leather soles)
