Easy Crochet Slippers from a Rectangle


Hi everyone, I’m Shehnaaz from
crochetdreamz.com and today I’m going to show you how to make these beautiful
slippers from a rectangle. To make the slippers
I used loops & threads impeccable yarn which is a size 4 worsted weight yarn and
a 6 millimeter or a J crochet hook. So gather your supplies and let’s get
started. I will be demonstrating US size 7. If you want to make it in any other
size please check out the written pattern. I will leave the link in the
description box below chain 28. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
21 22 23 24 25 26 27 and 28. So once you chain 28
we’ll start our first row which will be a regular single crochet row work a
single crochet into the second chain from your hook this is the first chain
and this is a second the loop on your hook does not count as a stitch so work
a single crochet into the second chain work a single crochet in to each chain
across to the end of the row so at the end you will have 27 single crochet so the first row is regular single
crochet row where you work one single crochet into each chain across have now
reached the end of Row one and I have a couple more chains to work into so I’ll
work a single crochet into each of them now we’re going to start our second row
which is going to be a half double crochet slip stitch row and I’ll show
you how to do that chain one and turn the chain one does not count as a slip
stitch and now we’re going to work our first slip stitch into the very first
stitch that is the same stitch from which the chain one is ammaji to work a
half double crochet slip stitch yarn over insert your hook into the first
stitch now pull up a loop and pull it through the stitch as well as the two
loops on your hook that completes a half double crochet slip stitch let’s repeat
that yarn over insert your hook into the next stitch pull up a loop and pull it
through the stitch as well as the two loops on your hook to complete a half
double crochet slip stitch so I’ll do that a few more times yarn over insert
your hook into the next stitch pull up a loop pull the loop through the stitch as
well as the two loops on your hook yarn over insert your hook into the next
stitch pull up a loop through the stitch as well as the two loops on your hook so
that will give you very visible bumps on the back side so keep working
herringbone half double crochet stitch not herringbone I’m sorry half double
crochet slip stitches across each of your stitches to the end of the row I’m then of my row – I have one more
half double crochet slip stitch to walk into the very last stitch so I walk into
the very last stitch and that completes Row 2 chain 1 and turn to begin Row 3
work one single crochet into each stitch across the beginning chain one does not
count as a stitch so you will walk your first single crochet into the same
stitch as a chain one so insert your hook complete single crochet work a
single crochet into each stitch across and each of your rows will have 27
stitches the stitch count should never change every row whether it’s a half
double crochet slip stitch or your single crochet row will have 27 stitches I’ve completed draw three now chain one
turn and walk a half double crochet slip stitch row so yarn over insert your hook
into the first stitch pull up a loop through the stitch as well as the two
loops on your hook and keep working half double crochet slip stitch in each
stitch across so you will alternate between a half double crochet slip
stitch row and a single crochet row until your piece measures around eight
and a half inches for us shoe size seven for any other sizes
please check the written pattern I have given the link in the description box
below so keep repeating the Toros and meet me
back when you have eight and a half inches I have now completed my rectangle it is
around nine and nine to nine quarter inches long and eight and a half inches
wide and I’m making a size seven US size 7 so the side you have the two tails
hanging this will form your ankle side and the side where you have no tails
will form your toe side so let’s see how to turn this flat piece into a shoe like
this keep your peace with the textured side
up this is the textured side where you have vertical ribs and the other side
will be plain and flat so keep it with your textured side up and this is where
the toe side will be there are no tails here so now we are going to shape the
toe side for that to make your left shoe fold one third of your piece inside like
that it should be a little more than one third for that you can fold your piece
into three like that and there is some pot left here which is around three by
four inches left after the last fold so this fold is a little smaller than the
other two and that is the way we want it open it place a marker where this fold
ends and this is for your left sandal or your
left shoe if you’re making your right one you will fold this butt like that
and place a marker here so let’s go ahead and make a left one you place a
marker I will run yon from the marker to the very edge to cinch that part while I
do that I will go through the very edge of the piece catching only one one
strand or one loop at a time I’m using a contrasting color so you can see what
I’m doing what’s that I’m going through the very edge I’ll leave a little bit of
tail here and then continue along the very edge catching only one loop you don’t want to catch too much fabric
or it’s going to feel like a lamp inside your shoe and that will be uncomfortable
so we want to keep the seam as flat as possible by going through the very edge
catching or going under just one loop at the very edge now once you have reached the edge for
both these ends to cinch that part you don’t want to bunch it up so much
that you know it would like feel like a lump again so keep your scene pretty
flat like that and then not the two ends so you can walk comfortably notice that
there is still a hole left we are not closing that completely but trying to
bunch it up a little so we get a flat seam tie both ends and then we’ll work
on closing that hole left so tying that ends will keep everything in place now
now flatten your seam like that and then work from the top to close that
hole again you will go through the very edge or catching just one loop on either
side of the hole you can take the marker up now and keep it out of the way you walk from the top yes I’m just one
loop on either side close that hole there now the flat the
seam has to be pretty flat and not just bunched up so tight like that we don’t
want that we want a pretty flat seam so make sure you don’t make it really tight and once you reach that fold make not make a couple of knots actually and then
just run your yarn back where you started where you have the fold there
your yarn should emerge from there so we just run it along the top very top like
that and back to that edge because we’re going to use it again to sew the flap
now you can leave your yarn there and we work on the ankle side and come back to
the side later do not cut off the yarn yet so now we have the ankle side
cinched up like that now let’s work on the ankle side so this is the front we
have cinched it up and now we are working on the ankle fold it in half
like that and you actually have yanti left here for you to work with but I
will be working with a contrasting color so you can see it for the ankle side for
the first half from where the fall starts or the edge of the fold the top
of your slipper I want you to work back stitches or running stitches half inch
inside the very edge so that will make your shoe really snug and help it stay
on your feet so go from like half inch inside start like that and then go
slanting to the edge like that and from there walk along the very edge going
through only one of the loops like that so you don’t feel a lump where you have
your ankle but at the back it’s pretty tight so it should go like this slant it
and then go down straight so let’s go ahead and what that
so let’s begin sewing the ankle side from the top down so like I said I will
start 1/2 inch inside the edge this is the edge I’ll go from here down like
that the top I’ll make a few stitches to reinforce it then I’m gonna walk my way down like
that in a slanting way until I hit half of the backside I’ve reached half now I’m going to go
along the very edge here and walk a web stitch by catching only one of the loops
on either side like that I don’t tighten it very much so that you
get a flat scene you can also use a mattress stitch since most of the people
know how to do Webster’s I’m just showing a whip stitch that’s only one of
the loops along the edges make a couple of knots the very edge or
the fold the base of the ankle then you can trim your yarn so that’s how you’ve
sewn your ankle the top part goes up so it’s tight at the top but has enough
space for your ankles of it at the back so here you go through the very edge and
here you catch more fabric and now turn your shoe inside out and we’ll work on
the flap so now you shows right-side out and you
can see the texture outside so at this stage you should slip your feet inside
even if you’re making it for somebody else you just have to like and the shoe
doesn’t fit you can just put the front of your foot inside and squish the back
like that and put your feet on it that’s okay if you’re making it for yourself where it’s on your feet like that thread the needle again and fold the flap tight like that as far
as it would go comfortably and now use this tail to walk your way up like that
go like that from here go up to the very edge and then come down until here when
you go down there you can just pull this up a little bit and then so that so that
will give you a really snug well-fitting slipper that will stay on your feet so
let’s go ahead and do that since the UH needle is really blunt you don’t have to
worry about poking yourself tuck this inside make sure it comes up wrap well
then go in and out through the edge of the flap catching both the layers it’s
okay if your stitches are big you just need to like hold it in place work until
the very edge of the flap to the tip while working on the tip you can pull it
a little bit down like that gives a nice look and then sew it down you make a couple of stitches there to
hold that edge in place you’ll be attaching your button there later and
now go ahead and come back up and go and so unfold this so I can tuck it in a
little and then go in and out in and out until you reach the top then you can
reinforce it a little here making a couple of stitches and take it off of your feet go in into
your shoe make a couple of knots there and then weave in the rest of the team
inside your shoe you’ll have more tails weave in all of them inside and not
outside you will have a tail of the toe side when you leave that and make sure
you don’t go at the very edge go through the top of your slipper rather than the
bottom so you don’t feel it when you wear your shoe so that’s how it looks
completed now you can go ahead and attach your buttons at the very edge of
the flap and one more here you can attach one more if you want but I prefer
to and that’s it and it’s gonna look like this
once you complete it so this is the left one this is the right one I made and
this is the left one I made with you you will have the flaps folding in the
opposite directions for both the right and the left ones if you’re making your right sandal
instead of folding this side you will fold one third of the side inside for
the other side and you know you should have three by four of an inch left here
after the final fold because you want your flap to be a little smaller so
bring it in like that make sure it’s position right hand side
and then place a marker and you will run your yarn from the marker to the left
and then cinch this side and bring it here like that when you’re making your
right sandal you’ll since the spot welcome the ankles then turn it inside
out and then fold the flap which will be folding to the opposite direction from
your left one so that’s how you make a pair of slippers very easy slippers from
a flat rectangle
