crafting with grandma - Converse Tennis Shoe Slippers!

plushie pet platypus free crochet patternI love my grandsons and I love to crochet, so I try to keep my eyes open for fun things to make for my sweet grandsons. My most recent completed project was the Perry the Platypus stuffed toys I made them - these were a huge hit! - and I'm working on an afghan for my new grandson who will be making his arrival in August! 

So, when I was browsing on Pinterest and found a free pattern for crocheted Converse tennis-shoe/slippers . . . I knew I would have to make some! I'm thinking about making these for the boys for Christmas - I'll have to adapt the pattern to make bigger sizes for Josiah and Caleb, but I think they will be fun - and warm! I especially like how they can tie on because it can be a challenge to keep slippers on little feet!

If you would like to make some of these cute slippers, just follow this link and you'll find the directions by Suzanne Resaul. Enjoy! Who might you make them for and what color would you use?
