Slippers

purple and blue slippers
Hats, scarves, and Mittens have always been the items we make and donate. We knit them, we crocheted and some are good at looming them too. Let's add slippers to the list of items needed. Specifically slippers for women and children. Slippers will be directed towards those mothers and children in temporary housing at Faith Mission. Faith Mission is new part of our mission. These women and children are living in temporary apartments. They come with very little, as many were homeless prior to this; and many were abused. Slippers would be a nice addition to help warm them, and let them know they're cared for.

Knitted, crocheted, washable slippers. As with our hats, scarves, and mittens the choice of yarn and pattern and color is yours. Let's just please stick to making them warm and shy aware from lacy, light patterns and yarns.

I made the above slippers some time back for Pine Ridge Reservation, but thought we needed a picture to get us started. There really is no pattern for this, I used 2 rectangles I had, folded them, stitched them, edged and made it up as I went. I will write a little tutorial on this and add to the tab along with some links for slipper patterns. Please check back.

  1. I want a pair of these, they look really comfy. I'll check back for your more detailed instructions on all how to make these slippers. I think they would make great Christmas presents. Probably don't use alot of yarn?

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
