Look! I Made Panzer Slippers!
I FINALLY finished my massive crochet stealth project and gave it to my boyfriend this weekend. I used the pattern for Tiger 1 Tank Panzer by Miligurumis (http://www.etsy.com/listing/108449743/pattern-for-tiger-1-tank-panzer) and worsted weight acrylic yarn (can’t remember the brand!), and it took me forever.
I used 3D fabric paint on the soles for grip, and amended the pattern as I worked to adjust for size. Note to future self: don’t date someone with size 13 US feet and then crochet or knit him anything for his feet. I used metal wire, stabilized inside the turret, to keep the barrel from drooping.
My boyfriend absolutely loves them, and proceeded to spend the whole weekend wearing them, making war noises, and pretending that he was invading
Poland my kitchen.
