Crochet Flower Bunny

I made a small crochet bunny for Nan (my grandmother) for her birthday this year. I found hte pattern online somewhere but can't remember where. But it is out there in cyberspace...somewhere. I love this little bunny. She just has that sweet face that you just want to look at all day long. Or at least I want to.
But she is at Nan's house now so I can't look at her. :-( I guess I will just have to make one for myself. :-) I love crocheting!

Crochet Lalaloopsy Shoes

I'm very excited to share with everyone my very first crochet pattern I made. Whoo-hoo! :-D Let the parade begin! Lol

This pattern is shoes for the 13 inch Lalaloopsy dolls. I have gotten into sewing for these dolls recently and thought they needed some shoes to go along with the dresses I am making them. Thus the shoe pattern was born! The shoes are very easy to make and work up quick. The pattern also allows you to mix it up however you want. I hope you enjoy making these shoes as much as I have.

What you need:
- 3.75 mm crochet hook
- yarn (I used Red Heart yarn. Leftovers from past projects work great, too.)
- needle
- embroidery floss

- single crochet (sc)
- Back Loops Only (BLO)
- stitch (st)
- single crochet 6 together (sc6tog)

Shoe Pattern (make 2) -

Chain 7

1) Sc in 2nd chain from the hook. Sc in each st across.Continue to sc on opposite side of the chain. (12)

2) Sc on BLO around (12)

3) Sc in each st (12)

4) Sc in the next 3 stitches, sc6tog, sc in the next 3 (7)

5-14) Sc in each sc (7)

Fasten off. Weave in ends.

Now take your embroidery floss and thread up the shoe like you were doing a real tennis shoe. Once at the top, tie the floss in a bow. I also knotted mine so they wouldn't come undone. Cut the ends Now you are done! :-D

Congratulations! You have made your own Lalaloopsy shoes for your doll!

- Add stripes
- Contrasting color shoe laces
- Crochet lace to the top
- Make the shoe shorter or taller 

*You do NOT have permission to sell this pattern. You DO have permission to sell the shoes you make from this pattern. If you do sell shoes from this pattern, please leave a like to the pattern. Thank you!*

Crochet Slippers

For my sister's birthday, I made some crocodile stitch slippers. I have made some for my mom and me and decided she needed a pair too. I used the Bonita pattern for the shoe. I love this pattern! You can probably tell since I used it 3x. Well, I guess 6x if you count each shoe. ;-) The yarn is *I think* Read Heart Boutique. But I'm not sure of the color name. I did mine with the same brand but it was with a purple scheme, not a blue.
