I have fallen in love with Toms shoes and really like their part in the mission to provide shoes for needy children around the world.. I was delighted that the Corduroy style did fit my narrow foot. Some of Toms shoes are a little loose on me. I think one of those Dr Scholl soles might help me with some of the styles that are loose. I wear size 6-1/2 and these fit me perfectly. I can also wear them with socks. I was surprised that even though it is a flat shoe it still provided some support.
My Toms are black so I thought I could add a little something by crocheting something cute. What could be cuter than a little Owl. I used 100% cotton yarn. I have lots of remnants left over from other projects ( lol. Owl Cell Phone cozies)
The crochet applique is secured by using a very small alligator clip I purchased from an Etsy seller. As you can see the white alligator clips measure around 5/8".
The Finished Owls:
Even though this is a very small and quick project, you will need to know how to make a single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, slip stitch and also how to make a picot stitch.
The pattern is here.
