DIY Tutorial – Crochet Sweet Simple Slippers – Soft Shoes Booties Bedroom Slipper for Adults

Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from Today I’m going to show you how to crochet slippers or soft shoes for an adult. You can find the written pattern my website To do this you’ll need one skein of Red Heart Super Saver yarn. We’ll be holding two strands of yarn together throughout this pattern. To make the slippers durable, I’m using a size G hook. But if you find it difficult to work with two strands of yarn, move up to a larger size H hook. To begin make a slipknot and then chain 13. If you need help with the basics of crochet, please see my beginner crochet videos on YouTube. Next skip that first chain and do a single crochet in the next chain and in every chain across for a total of twelve single crochet stitches. It is a bit challenging working with two strands of yarn, but it’s necessary to create a good, solid, soft-shoe. Once you finish the 12 single crochet stitches, pivot your work so that you are working on the other side of the chain. And along this side of the chain make 12 single crochet stitches. That first single crochet is going to cause your work to curl inwards a bit. This is completely normal and part of the design. Once completed you will notice your work looks like the letter U. And there are 24 single crochet stitches along this U-shaped item. Chain one and turn your work. Now we’re going to work on row 2. For this row just do one single crochet in each stitch around the “U” for a total of twenty-four single crochet stitches. Work your stitches around the curve. Once completed this is what your work looks like for row 2. Chain one and turn your work. Keep making 24 single crochet stitches along this U-shape. It’s probably a good idea to measure your work before you get too far along. And try it on your foot as well. To make it larger or smaller all you need to do is alter the beginning chain. We’re going to continue along crocheting in our “U” shape for several more rows. Ideally you’ll want to crochet right on top of the front of your ankle bone. As a guideline here is a chart showing the number of rows I’d recommend. Feel free to crochet more or less than this depending upon your own foot size. And try it on your foot. Next we’re going to connect the two sides together across the ankle bone section. To do this chain 4. If you need a different size feel free to either add or subtract from this chain number. Reach over to the other side and make a single crochet in the very first stitch. Try it on your foot again and mark your first stitch. Since we’ll be working in spiral rounds do one single crochet stitch around. And be sure to single crochet through each of the four chains as well. Remove the marker and make a single crochet stitch. Put the marker back so you know where your first stitch is again. And keep crocheting around in spirals. Each round will have 28 stitches on them. 24 from the heel section plus the 4 chains equals 28 single crochet stitches on every round. I would recommend crocheting anywhere from 10 to 14 total rounds depending upon your foot size. Ideally you’ll want to keep crocheting until your big toe sticks out just a little bit. As you can see here the last three rounds we will be decreasing our stitches to close up the top part. The very first stitch will be a “single crochet 2 together” stitch. To do this we’re going to work only in the front loops of the first two stitches. The next two stitches will be single crochet stitches. Then do your “single crochet 2 together” stitch followed by one single crochet in each of the next two stitches. Do your single crochet 2 together followed by a single crochet and then another single crochet all the way around. For this next round we’re going to do a single crochet 2 together followed by one single crochet stitch. And then the single crochet 2 together stitch followed by one single crochet stitch. Do this all the way around. On this last round do the single crochet 2 together stitch all the way around. This will really tighten up the top. And your stitches will be a bit tight to work with but go slowly and it will work out for you. Once completed you will have just a tiny hole on the top. Pull out the loop to finish it and then use a yarn needle to make two or three stitches to completely close up the space at the top. And then properly cut and weave in all ends. Feel free to decorate your slipper any way you wish. I’m using a flower from one of my previous videos on YouTube, which you can find a link for in the description of this video. Now crochet items can be very slippery on the bottom if you walk on hardwood floors. To prevent that I like to add a slip-resistant product on the bottom – one hundred percent silicone made for sealing fish tanks is strong and non-toxic once dried. Or you can use puff paint for fabric. With the aquarium silicone I like to put dots all over the bottom, then I let it dry completely overnight. And here is my finished slipper shoe.

  • Can I just say you are so AWESOME, and I'd like to thank you for teaching me how to chrocet! I first learned to crochet in 2014, by watching your beginner crochet left hand tutorial. I was looking for a way out of a horrible depression, so I decided to pick up the single 5mm hook and 1 skein of yarn I purchased almost 2 years before I actually gave crocheting a try ?.
    I looked up a tutorial for left hand beginners and wala, Naztazia! 24 hours later I woke in a cocoon of yarn (literally), but I had learn to make an ugly chain and some funky rows of single crochet. Two days later I had an ugly rectangle of S,HD,D and T crochets, plus much confidence and and even greater determination! From that time, I have gone on to make all kinds of beautiful crochet items, like a pro, and enjoy giving them away! I have taught my daughters, and several others to crochet, and I continue to gift my projects and teach anyone who wants to learn how to do it!
    What you do by sharing your skills, is simply priceless! In a single day your tutorial helped me turn away from a negative focus, and turn my pain into passion and beautiful creations!
    Jah bless you, and all the hookers, who get others hooked; you are amazing! Thanks again, for introducing me to the wonderful world of crochet!!!

  • Thank You!

  • Hello how do u make it bigger in the heal having a issue with my foot fitting all the way down in the slipper..i wear a size 11

  • Hi Donna. I love these slippers and your tutorial is so complete (as always!) ? I was wondering if I could use one strand of a "plushy" type yarn & one strand of the Super Saver? If so, do you have a recommendation for a "plushy" yarn to use & possibly a hook size recommendation?
    Thank you so much for your beautiful patterns and wonderful tutorials! You're so very helpful… I'm a self-taught crocheter who learned using size 10 crochet thread and steel hooks! Talk about hard! Good thing I didn't know any better! That's what everyone crocheted with "back then"!
    Always checking your channel for the latest posting. Thanks again! ❤️?

  • Your the best

  • Very nice

  • Hi Donna, I just finished these slippers . They were fun but quite challenging for me with 2 yarns. I just started crocheting in Feb. I tried to put the picture up on your Facebook but I don't know if it worked. Anyhow thanks for teaching me how! Gail

  • Hi Donna, Thank-you so so much for teaching me how to do a slipper to be proud of!! I’ve tried several different patterns but this is exactly what I was looking for. Also having written and video instruction helps immensely. So happy … thanks again.

  • Hi Naztazia, I am making these slippers again for my granny who is a shoe size 8 and does not live in my city. It would be really very helpful if you could guide me about the length of the slipper from toe to ankle portion and ankle to heel portion in inches or centimetres for a size 8 shoe. I tried google but everyone gives measures for the entire foot. Please help if possible. Thank you for all the lovely patterns on your website too. Awaiting your response.

  • Have u translate in hindi?

  • I'm crocheting a shawl now but will give this a try soon.

  • Very nice dear??God bless you☺️☺️

  • Love this design 🙂 and so easy to do. Thank you

  • I commented earlier but after finishing the first slipper I must say this has become my favourite slipper pattern. I love the no sew / no seams and the possibility to decorate with anything. Thank you.
