ASSEMBLY:
Crochet 8 squares for each slipper and sew them tog, edge to edge as shown in fig-1.
Fig-2 shows the slipper after it has been sewn tog – NOTE: by arrows in fig-2 (i.e. in corner mid upper foot and in corner mid back on heel) do not sew tog the ch-loops, i.e. leave a small opening, otherwise it will be difficult to put the slipper on.

FELTING:
Wash slippers in the washing machine with a detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach. Wash at 40 degrees with normal spin, but without pre-wash. After wash form the slipper to the right size whilst still wet and leave to dry. At subsequent washes wash slippers at a wool programme.
NOTE: If the slippers haven’t felted enough, wash them again. If they have felted too much, soak them until thoroughly wet and pull them to desired length.

Päästääkö lanka väriä eli voinko laittaa yhtaikaa koneeseen kahdet eriväriset tossut?

Hei, voit pestä eriväriset tossut yhtaikaa.

Stinne 05.01.2015 - 07:01:

Hvilken str. hæklenål skal man bruge til sko/tøfler str. 44- 46 og hvor store skal ruderne være?

DROPS Design 06.01.2015 kl. 16:55:

Hej Stinne. Det ved jeg desvaerre ikke, men jeg ville nok pröve at haekle en pröve med en större naal - eller haekle en större firkanter, filte den og beregne om den er stor nok til en 44-46

Liebes Drops-Team, ab der 3. Runde ziehen sich meine Granny Squares an den Rändern in die Mitte zusammen. Kann es sein, dass nach den zwei ersten Stäbchen der 3. Runde drei Luftmaschen und dann nochmal drei Stäbchen folgen, so wie in den Runden davor? Dann zieht sich das Viereck nicht mehr zusammen. Ich habe jetzt nur Bedenken, dass die Wolle nicht reicht wenn drei Stb. mehr gehäkelt werden als angegeben... Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe!

DROPS Design 06.03.2015 kl. 12:24:

Liebe Eva, in der 3. Rd müsste der Rhythmus wie zuvor gearbeitet werden, also um jeden Lm-Bogen 3 Stb, 3 Lm und 3 Stb (bzw. am Rd-Anfang wird das 1. Stb durch 3 Lm ersetzt). Die Wolle reicht wie beschrieben.

I've made four pairs of these in different colours and they have proved very popular with my friends. I also struggled with the sewing together of the first pair but then made little paper labels with the letter as per the diagram and pinned them onto the correct edge. Then it was simple! I love felting them in the washing machine - like magic

Jättefina tofflor! Dock räckte det inte med ett nystan av färg nr 1, och då slösade jag inte...:)

Regina Aguiar Arantes 30.07.2014 - 17:26:

Oi, achei linda a pantufa, mas não consigo acertar na montagem, poderia me ajudar? Grata

Help!! Please help with sewing together I just cannot follow the diagrams. thank you in advance. Cheryl

DROPS Design 30.01.2014 kl. 10:09:

Dear Cheryl, the video below should help you to sew squares together - the slipper in the video is knitted but the assembly is the same. Happy crocheting!

Ich möchte diese Schuhe gerne in der Größe 41/42 machen. Welche Nadelstärke würden Sie empfehlen und welche Wollmenge werde ich wohl brauchen?

DROPS Design 22.01.2014 kl. 08:15:

Liebe Isa, Sie könnten versuchen, durch vorsichtigeres Filzen eine grössere Grösse zu erhalten.

Bianca Van Dongen 04.01.2014 - 16:35:

Ik had moeite met het in elkaar zetten van de lapjes. Mijn man bedacht om aan elke zijde met dezelfde letter stukjes draad in dezelfde kleur te zetten. Toen was het een simpel klusje!

Hanna Sattler 25.10.2013 - 13:59:

Hallo, habe ein problem . habe das viereck mit nr 10 gehäkelt und häkle nicht fest sondern eher locker . trotzdem messen sie keine 15 X 15 cm sondern ich musste eine zusätzliche runde machen . somit komme ich natürlich auch mit dem garn nicht hin. habe aber auch in der hellsten farbe probleme obwohl ich mega sparsam im abschjneiden bin . wie kann das sein denn habe mengeund garnsorte wie angegeben .

DROPS Design 28.10.2013 kl. 10:13:

Liebe Hanna, Sie sollten auf keinen Fall eine Runde mehr häkeln, sondern die Nadelstärke so anpassen, bis Sie das angegebene Mass erreichen.
