Simple Toddler Slippers Simple Toddler SlippersToddler slippers are on the agenda today! I love making baby booties, but toddlers are running rampant throughout my house so they really make more sense for me to crochet.

In order to make a really simple toddler slipper, I’ve taken my Basic Baby Shoes pattern and revamped it so that it will fit a larger foot. Simple Toddler Slippers


Anyone who has tried (and failed) to make two identical baby shoes will appreciate the simple, no fuss design of this very simple and basic pattern!

The finished project is approximately 6″ inches from heel to toe. Playing with the hook size will give you a little more wiggle room if you need them larger or smaller.

Interested in a complete printable pdf copy filled with extras you won’t find here in the blog pattern? You can find it only over in my Craftsy shop!

    I am new to crocheting so this may be a really dumb question… Do I need to do something different with one of them since they are going on opposite feet? Does that question even make sense? Lol


    • Marissa December 15, 2012 at 1:21 am Reply

      It totally makes sense! These will stretch so the right and left won’t matter when you are finished 🙂


  12. kacie December 2, 2012 at 3:30 pm Reply

    k, so i think i may be doing something wrong. when i finish, the heel/ankle part is too wide. so i had to weave in a string to pull it tight for my kiddo to wear it w/o it falling off. any ideas maybe on what could possibly be wrong?


    • Marissa December 2, 2012 at 10:10 pm Reply

      You could try sizing your hook down to make it smaller. That might help!


  13. kacie November 30, 2012 at 10:49 pm Reply

    “dc2tog 8 times” for this part on ‘rnd 2’ does that mean 8x in the same hole?


    • kacie November 30, 2012 at 10:58 pm Reply

      actually nevermind. lol i read too much into it and pulled up a vid. dont suppose you have a video tutorial on this and other crochet items you do?


      • Marissa December 1, 2012 at 3:06 am

        I have a video tutorial series for the loop boots but not these slippers. If I could get my kids to cooperate I’d try one! 😉


      • kacie December 1, 2012 at 9:49 am

        haha i know that feeling. i have a 2yr old and 1yr old

    I want to make these toddler shoes but cannot print instructions. How do I get them?


    • Marissa September 30, 2012 at 1:24 pm Reply

      As of right now, the pattern is only available in this format. I have plans to update these patterns into a pdf in the very near future!

    These are really cute, the only problem is my daughter is already in a size 8 and I want them for winter. I am a beginner so do not feel capable of increaseing sizes. Sugeestions?

    Cute! not to many people write booties for toddlers so it’s refreshing when I see one 🙂 I’m actually in the process also of writing one up. 🙂


    • Marissa February 24, 2012 at 8:56 am Reply

      I did these as a request from a friend of mine who was looking around for something simple to make her toddler. She has been searching for a while and there isn’t anything out there!

      Can’t wait to see your pattern! I’ll be sure to pass it along to her as well.
