Christmas Cards Slipper

Christmas Cards Slipper

This is a good way to recycle those beautiful Christmas cards. And, if you just can't bear to cut them up; scan a copy of the card you like and then follow the instructions just as if it were the card. These are pretty hanging on the tree or from the fireplace mantel.

Supplies:

Instructions:

Print out a copy of the templates in the PDF (at the bottom of the post), using light card stock. Lay the pieces on your cards placing them so that they capture the best part of the picture on the card. Trace around the edges of the templates and mark the holes. Punch the holes with the paper punch. Starting at any hole on the sole template; crochet into each hole 3-4 times. When you get all holes worked, add one more stitch in the first hole, and fasten off. Repeat with the top template. starting at the right side of the top.

After you have crocheted around both pieces, match the middle hole at the bottom of the top (toe) piece to the middle hole on the sole piece and use this as your starting place to crochet the two pieces together. Matching the holes on both pieces as you work, crochet 2 stitches in each hole along the right side ending at the top of the toe piece. Beginning again at the middle hole at the bottom, matching holes as you work, repeat along the opposite side of the Slipper. Crochet a chain about 4 inches and thread it through the holes at the top (heel) of the slipper and tie at the back. This will be your "hanger"for the slipper. You could add some silk holly to the slipper if you like.

My grandmother used to this all the time back in the 60's and 70's, she taught me how to do some of it but I havn't done any of it since the late 70's. I still have a basket and shoe (pencil holder)and a lamp shade from then. She also made Lamp Shades, different size baskets, napkin holders, guest towel holders and so on. Very nice to see that someone out there still does it.
