Nima slippers are so amazing, easy and quick to make!
You don’t need to be an expert in crochet to make these.
Long time ago, when I started to crochet, I read one lady’s post how she made a slippers while watching TV because her feet were cold and thought to myself “OMG! How did she do that?!?!?!” … lol … well this is how. You can actually make these while watching your favorite TV show! I hope you will enjoy making these! 🙂
