Squishy Soles and Velvet Soft Toppers
Made with Red Heart Super Saver, the soles of the Simple Spa Slippers are crocheted with the yarn held doubled - and then 2 layers are sewn together for extra squish! Super Saver is of course the perfect yarn for the soles of house slippers - tough on the floor, but perfectly soft for the bottom of the feet!
Then, the tops of the slippers are made with Bernat Baby Velvet - again, held doubled! I love the cozy feel of these on the top of my feet - I keep wiggling my toes! And it looks great too! For slippers, Super Saver and Velvet make a wonderful combo.
Easy Enough for Beginners
The stitches used to make the Simple Spa Stitches are super easy - it's all single crochet! The only "tricky" bit is the sc2tog decrease, which is the first decrease you likely learned.
To keep this pattern as simple as can be, I've made both right and left feet the same. So there is minimal shaping - and you don't have to think about which one goes on which foot. Slippers like this are also great for those with flat and wide feet, like me - for once, my feet don't overhang the soles!
Simple Spa Slipper Finishing Touches
After you've made all the pieces of the Simple Spa Slippers, but before you've assembled them, you might want to consider how to make them non-slip. And I have a collection of non-slip slipper ideas and products for you to try!
You can also add a stiffer sole if you like! I recommend using your sole as a template to cut 2 pieces of plastic canvas just a bit smaller than your slipper. Then sandwich each one between the layers of the sole as you sew them together.
