Crochet Sandals

Introduction: Crochet Sandals

About: I am a homemaker from India and always love creating something new and interesting!!

Why buy when you can make! There's nothing better than having a unique pair of sandals compared to the mass produced ones.

After looking at same things over again and again in all the shops and everyone's feet, I decided to make my own unique and stylish sandals.

You should also make them and get ready for compliments!
