GoofingOff’s Friday Freebie

Today’s Friday Freebie is a day late but awesome just the same. It is a flower wreath by Jacquelynne Steves. The design is suitable for embroidery, applique, needlepoint, or punch embroidery. It can be done in pastels for springs, orange, brown, and yellow for fall, or silver (or gold) with red berries for the holidays.

Friday Freebie: Crocheted Slippers

Screen Shot 2015-06-022

I am surrounded by old papers and patterns….surrounded…but patterns like this one…..I’m OK. These cute slippers came from an old magazine page….not sure what magazine but they look like they’d keep feet warm on a cold winter night….and winter will come soon enough. Crochet a few pairs of these honeys while you sit at the pool or in the car during the summer road trip and holiday shopping will be a little less hectic.

Per the pattern: “Crochet these from  Coats & Clarks Red Heart Knitting Worsted. Six ounces are sufficient for a pair; use plastic crochet hook G. Instructions are given for small size, changes for medium and large are in parentheses. Sew elastic thread around top.

Abbreviations:

ch (chain)       sk (skip)

st (stitch)        hdc (half double crochet)

dc (double crochet)   rnd (round)

inc (increase)

sp  (space)           dec (decrease)

While thrifting I found this pattern in a pile of papers. The pages were rough but this is still a keeper. Easy to make and fun to wear. Enjoy!
