Crochet Slippers Pattern

I've been waiting to show you my latest creation, my beautiful new crochet slippers. 
I couldn't resist buying the pattern for these from
Two Girls Patterns on Etsy as they are so cute.
The wonderful thing about them, is their double sole that most other patterns for crochet slippers don't have.  They are so comfortable and I now have very warm tootsies!!  Something which is very pleasing as usually, at this time of year, my feet are freezing.
The pattern comes in 6 different sizes for ladies. I made up mine in size 9, which converts to a UK size 7.
I used a shoe size conversion chart to make sure I was making the right size for me.
The pattern is in US terminology but I didn't find it hard to convert to UK terminology. 
It is an extremely well written pattern and straight forward to follow. 
Two Girls recommended using worsted weight yarn so I opted for Sirdar's Supersoft Aran in Brown for the sole, and Aqua for the upper.  It is a good quality 100% acrylic yarn, very soft but hard wearing, ideal for slippers.
Buzz approves too!
I used two buttons from my stash that I  found on one of my hunting trips around the charity shops. 
I love them so much, I think I will definitely need another pair!!
If you would like to purchase the pattern follow the link below to Two Girl's shop
The pattern is called Violet Women's Slipper
