Felted Baby Slippers

Posted on August 6, 2010

I crocheted these felted baby slippers using just a small amount of chunky wool yarn that I had left over from a thrift store purchase. I was inspired by the cute felted woman’s slippers that Guro created. Guro has a new blog site where you can find all kinds of beautiful new craft projects that she has created. I just love all her beautiful crochet projects. Click on over and check out her gorgeous designs.

I wanted to make baby slippers to fit my Granddaughter who is 10 months old. So through trial and error, I finally came up with a pattern that after felting fit her feet.

My finished slippers before felting were 3″ wide by 5″ inches long with a toe depth of 2″. After felting the slippers are 2.5″ wide by 4.25″ long. Guro has graciously allowed me to post my baby version of her slipper pattern below. Enjoy and happy crafting to all!

Felted Baby Wool Slippers

Crochet hook: “J” (6 mm) hook
Yarn: 2 ozs Bulky/Chunky weight wool yarn
2) small star buttons

Rnd 1
Ch 2, work 6 Sc in 2nd ch from hook. Don’t join as this pattern is worked in rounds without joining.

Rnd 2
Work 2 Sc in ea st around to create the toe. (12 sts)

Rnd 3-7
*Sc in first st and then 2 Sc in next st*. Repeat between * until you have 19 sts in the round.
Then work even Sc in ea st until your toe is 2″ long which is approx. 7 rounds.

Repeat rnd 8 until your slipper is 5″ long or approx. 16 rnds completed.

FO slipper and leave a long tail to close the end of the heel with. Weave under ends.

Make 2 slippers and then felt them in the hottest water setting you have on your washer for about 15-20 minutes. Check sizing a few times as you felt the slippers. Felt them more if needed to get to the right length for your baby’s foot. Once your felting is complete, shape the slippers and let dry.
