Row7: hdc in each st until the end. Ch1, turn. (48st) Row8: repeat row 7. Fasten off. Turn the boot inside out. Sew the strap at the bottom.

With contrast color:  Sc around the strap and fasten off.

Sew in the buttons accordingly. Make sure they are alight correctly with the holes of the strap. For the left foot slipper, turn the “sock” inside out. Repeat the whole process. This step is so that the strap where the buttons go through end on the opposite side of the previous boot which is the left side.

Right foot

Left foot

Comments: depending on how big your buttons are you must make the strap hole. For my first pair I got really big ones so my holes consisted of Ch4 and skip 4. Also these slippers are size 7. After row 12 I kept trying it on to see where I should stop, which were about 7 more rows. So if you have bigger size make sure you try it on and measure your feet, the tip of the slipper should cover your foot almost touching your ankle. Contact me if you have any questions!
