All year round challenge: The D from Dog


For the letter D in my challenge I knew right away what I wanted to design. 

My baby girl (she turns 6 next week, but you know she is the youngest so she is my baby) wanted slippers after the amazing Ninja Turtle slippers I made for my boy. This girl is a real girly girl so pink must do. And I don't know about you guys but I really like a poodle, the pink ones in particular. So the slippers needed to be poodles.

In the past I had found a crocheted poodle hat, so with that image in mind I started to crochet. 



My baby girl is in LOVE and mommy as well! These ones turn out real adorable!! And I almost think it's a waiste to wear them. But hey, if they are dirty I crochet a pair of new ones, in purple maybe or blue with bows around the ears! Come to think about it, I think I will do that last option very soon ;) 

So now you are waiting for the moment when I say, here is the FREE pattern? 

Okay, so here is the FREE pattern!!! 

Will you let me enjoy your version of the slipper? Please send me a mail or massage at my Facebook page and I will share your version with all of my fans on Facebook! 

I made these slippers for a girl with shoe size 30 (European size), 11 (UK), 12 (US). The size is adjustable by adding or leaving a round. 
I am going to try to make the slipper for a bigger size also, so keep checking the pattern if you also like them in adult size.
