Despicable Minion slippers
For these slippers I used:
An I sized crochet hook
Yarn: Red Heart acrylic (yellow, black, grey, white)
Lion Wool-Ease blend (blue)
These slippers fit a child size 3-4. If you need a larger size you can either add more rows of blue/yellow at the places marked with an *
To begin: Chain 4 – join w/ a slip stitch to make a ring
Row 1 - SC 9 in the ring – join w/ sl. st.
Row 2 - 2 SC in each st. around - join w/ sl. st.
Row 3 - 2 SC, 1 SC (repeat) - join w/ sl. st.
Row 4 - 2 SC, 1 SC, 1 SC (repeat) - join w/ sl. st.
Rows 5-19* - SC in each st - join w/ sl. st.
- Switch to blue
Row 20 – 1 row of SC in each st around
Row 21- SC in each st BUT skip the last 5 stitches. Then Chain 1 and turn
Row 22-40* SC in each st. (at the end of each row ch 1 and turn)
At the end of row 40* tie off, but leave a longer 'tail' for sewing. Whip stitch the back seam of the slipper.
Then, (with blue) draw a loop throughthe top edge of the the back seam and make 1 SC in that spot.
- SC in each st. around the top edge of the slipper (now going back over those rows you skipped)
- This will form the 'cuff' of the slipper.
Chain 16 (or more depending on the width of your slipper)
Turn, and SC in each st. across. Fasten off.
Leaving a longer tail, whipstitch this piece midway across the yellow portion of the slipper.
(Weave in the ends)
Eyes: (make 3)
Chain 4 – join w/ a slip stitch to make a ring
SC 9 in the ring – join w/ sl. st.
2 SC in each st. around - join w/ sl. st.
Change to grey:
SC in each St around, fasten off – but leave a longer 'tail' for sewing
For the Pupil:
You can either use a pom pon and hot glue it on to the slipper, or what I did was braid a portion of black yarn and tie it into a thick knot. I pulled this through the center of the white and tied it again/fastened it in the back of the white portion of the eye.
I then sewed the eyes on top of the black strap.
Use black yarn to embroider a mouth, and add a few pieces of fringe for hair.
