It's A Shark!
Believe it or not, the rather weird piece I showed you in my last post folds up to become a shark slipper. My neighbour Dorie wanted socks for both her granddaughters. She said that Clara wanted socks that look as though sharks are eating your legs. That had me a bit baffled. Luckily, a few days later I came across the pattern for these shark slippers on Facebook. Ah, the very thing. You can find the pattern here. Thanks to Crafty Charli for making it available. I had to alter the pattern a bit to make it fit a teenager rather than a five-year-old. And the 'blood' dripping from the jaws is not on the original pattern: that's Dorie's idea.
