Next take your foam and cut out two identical soles that match the soles just crochet, but make these soles slightly smaller and place the foam in between two of the crochet soles. With darning needle and yarn sew around the soles. Do this again with the other two soles.

Row 1-4: 10 SC, Ch 1, turn- except on row 4 tie off and hide string.
Make to Over Foot Straps one for each sole. Sew these straps to the middle of the soles as shown.
Take a strand of yarn measuring 1 yard in length. Take a darning needle and poke needle through sole (all three layers) and back up through the sole (all three layers) and pull the strand of yarn so both ends of the strand are even, giving you two equal pieces. Then take these two pieces and tie a knot at the base of sole to keep the yarn from moving. Take each strand and Ch 14 then tie off. After making the Ch attach a darning needle to the tail of the ch strand and sew to the sole in shown manner, toward the heal of the sole.
