Make your tatty old slippers a thing of the past with these washable beauties! Each pair only takes a ball or two from your yarn stash, so they’re great for using up odd skeins from other projects, and they’re washable too. We have three versions for you to choose from: plain, striped and decorated with wooden hearts. You’ll also add a pretty edging to your slippers using a simple crochet border. If you haven’t crocheted before, don’t worry – we can help! Check out our easy-to-follow how-to guides here.
