I decided to crochet my mum some cute slippers for Mother's Day this year. Actually, I needed some slippers myself, so I made a prototype (based loosely off this pattern, but with a bit of ad-libbing) which I have kept for myself (pictured above). They are very comfy and warm and what's more - it uses up some of the yarn from my stash, which is quite big.
The below are the ones I made for my mum. They look a bit odd without feet in them, but they do fit the same way. My only recommendation - make them quite tight because they will stretch a lot!
