Finished the Simple Classic Mary Jane Slippers last night. They are really cute. I think I will add a piece of ribbon attached with a button on the outer strap edges just to give them a little 'umph.'
These are terrific for a beginner! They crocheted up in about an hr/slipper. So for those of you looking to make gifts for Christmas - these are perfect. Like I said, add a funky ribbon and button or some rolled fabric or rolled ribbon flowers to the outer edge straps, and they'd be an adorable pair of slippers that anyone would be happy to receive. One word of caution: I almost slid and bruised my bum. So, I will be adding some puffy paint to the soles to prevent slipping. I suggest if you gift them, you do the same. :)
