Um, I saw a neat project on here where someone had crocheted a bag out of plastic bags. And I thought that was cool. Except I don't use bags all that much, and I wasn't sure what I'd crochet out of plastic.
And then I thought about shoes. And I told someone I'd crochet some shoes out of this plastic 'yarn' I was making.
And, well, I did. Very lopsided shoes ^_^.
Make plastic yarn acording to the link back posted. Roll it together until it's about the size of a softball (a bit more than in the picture.) This should be enough for 2 shoes.
I know nothing about crocheting except how to do some stuff. So... this is the basic "pattern" that I followed.
I made the flat shape, and then sewed the x'es together across the shoe.
Get your brother to take a picture, and wear them proudly. Even if they are incredibly lopsided ^_^.
