I almost didn’t post these crochet barefoot sandals. They didn’t quite turn out the way I had envisioned, however, I thought they were still cute and maybe someone out there would love them. I stewed for about 2 weeks and then decided to just go for it and post them. I think I could have possibly made the triangle smaller, maybe? I am not sure but I am excited to see some of you try it. I hope you will consider sharing your finished versions with me, either in our facebook group or on instagram!
I guess you can decide, are these crochet barefoot sandals cute or a crochet fail?

12. Ch 1. Work a dc3tog across 3 stitches. Turn. Ch 1.
Continuing where you left off: working as evenly as possible, sc down the raw edge of the triangle. (be sure to move your tails to the back side, we will take care of those later). When you get to the corner, work a sc 2, ch 2, sc all in the space. This makes a corner and a small hole for the ankle tie. Work across the top of the triangle and repeat the corner in the last st. Work down remaining raw edge, making sure to put the tails at the back. When you get to the tip, work a ch 12 (or the length that works for your foot).
Weave in your border end but leave the rest of the tails.
SERAPE CROCHET BAREFOOT SANDAL CONSTRUCTION:
Using your finished crochet triangle piece as a guide, cut a triangle shape from your felt.
Trim your yarn ends so they are short enough to manage, but long enough that you can lay them flat on the back of the triangle. (you may need to trim the triangle down so it fits on the back side of the triangle.)
Apply hot glue to the barefoot sandal, with all the ends laying flat on the back side. (You can slather the glue all over the ends, as they will be covered in felt). Place the felt triangle to the back, over all the ends and press firmly in place.
(Depending on your felt, your finished crochet barefoot sandals might be a little stiff, just work them a bit in your hands to soften them up a bit.)
I quite like how they look while wearing flats, too.
What do you think? Are these crochet barefoot sandals a win or a fail?
