I decided today to share one of my favorite slipper patterns. These mary jane slippers are cute, comfy and a lot more stylish than some traditional crochet slipper patterns.
The pattern I use for the adult slippers was designed by Nikki Kirkwood. The instructions call for a button to be used as an accent on the slippers but you can use any applique you want. In the picture above, I used a small flower instead of the button. For Valentine’s Day, I crocheted some slippers for a gift and used a small pink heart. The pattern for the adult slippers is available as a free download and can be found:
I recently completed a custom order for matching adult and toddler mary jane slippers. To complete the order, I created the pattern for toddler slippers below. The pattern is for a toddler with a shoe size of 6-7.5 but can be adjusted to fit up to a toddler size 10.
