Crochet Ballerina Slippers

My niece Andie is a wonderfully talented ballerina - something I wish I had been.  However, the closest I can get to dancing is by crocheting these absolutely adorable slippers.
In hindsight, I could have made them for her but, being unsure of the pattern, followed it exactly and they fit me.  I'm sure she won't mind.  Should she want a pair though, I shall be more than happy to make some for her.

They are extremely simple.  I am only an intermediate crocheter at best and I had no problems with these at all and finished the first one in one evening.

They are much nicer than wearing a pair of socks around the house - something I have found myself doing even though I constantly grumble at my son for doing the same thing.  Funnily enough, he doesn't want a pair although he has asked for a pair of knitted black socks.  It's back to knitting for a while then ..

Perfect for dancing feet .. 
Couldn't resist another pair.
Happy Crocheting
