Name: Sandman Slippers
Pattern: Peter Pan's slippers by Gabriela Ordenes
Made for: my friend, Ossi
Hook: 5.0 mm (H)
Yarn: Novita Isoveli, 2 skeins
And I'm really pleased with the slippers that I crocheted! I changed the original theme from Peter Pan to Sandman, because my yarn was so nightly blue. And to enhance my theme, I sewed some silver felt stars with sequin hears on them. Originally I was going to make yellow stars, but my friend said that gray stars would look great... I was a bit dazzled about that, but then I realized he meant silvery stars. Men and colors, usually not a good match. Anyway. I liked his idea and bought some nice silvery felt instead of ugly bright yellow.
My friend visited us on Thursday and I gave him the slippers. He seemed to like them, though he associated them with magicians instead of Sandman. Magicians are pretty cool too, especially if they know some good playing card tricks.
