From the very first day I was introduced to the magical world of the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s ruby red slippers were a point of fascination. Being only a tiny tot the first time I ever saw the movie, I loved watching her vibrant heels click along the yellow brick road as she went on her way.
Prepared to go on your own magical journey? Pick up that nifty hook and a skein of yarn and come along on this fun adventure. It won’t be long before your little one will be clicking her heels together in these darling Ruby Red Mary Jane Booties.
For quite some time now I’ve envisioned creating these pair of dainty, crocheted, red slippers but just couldn’t seem to find just the right yarn for the design. When I received a special delivery from KnittingFever some time back, and discovered a couple of incredibly soft skeins of wool in the most beautiful, garnet red I knew it was a match made in heaven… Don’t you agree?
