Vintage Ladies Bedroom Slippers


2 big balls Princess Pearl Crochet Cotton, Art. 453, No. 3;
1 steel crochet hook, No. 5;
1 pair Pearl quilted satin soles;
1 1/2 yards No. 7 ribbon for bows.


These ladies slippers are approximately size 4 or 5.


Make a chain of 16 stitches, as shown in Figure 1, which will allow you 1 st. for turning.

1st row: 1 s. c. in every st., 1 ch. and turn.

2d row: 1 s. c. in each of 7 st. (taking up the back stitch; you will then have formed one rib of vamp), 3 st. in the 8th, 1 s. c. in each of 7 st., 1 ch. and turn.

Continue, making 21 ribs, or 42 rows for vamp, increasing 2 extra st. in center of each rib (or every other row).

Turnover and around slipper:

Work 20 s. c. on the side, then make a ch. of 17 st. for turnover, now work back and forth on 36 st. for 35 ribs or 70 rows, join on wrong side, taking up 20 st. of back stitch of side and vamp.

This will make a neat joining and will not show on the outside; finish with cord around the turnover as follows: take up 1 st., ch. 3, then take up next st., ch. 3, cross the first 3 ch. st. over the last, and 1 s. c. next to the last 3 ch. st. just made.

Continue in like manner all around.

Use two threads in making the cord, first chain of 3 made with one thread, second chain of 3 made with second thread, etc.

Carefully sew the crocheted top to the satin soles of the correct size, and finish with a neatly made bow of satin ribbon on each slipper.
