Puff st. – represents a group of 3 incomplete stitches into the same stitch/place. When you finish crocheting the partial stitches you will then close the stitch by pulling the yarn through all of the loops, except for the last. Now, you have 2 loops on the hook. Make one loop from them.

You can easily customize it to your liking.
It’s up to you to determine how many rows you want to make for the slippers. 
Measure your work before you get too far along. And try it on your foot as well.

Now we’ll do the last three rows.

We’ll reduce the number of stitches in these rows.
Row 25: CH 3, DC2tog to the end row
Row 26: CH 3, DC2tog to the end row
Row 27: CH one, SC2tog to the end row

Do SC stitches around the slippers edging.

Thread the yarn through stitches of the last row.
Pull yarn as tight as you can to close the circle.

Then, close the two side together (8 cm /3.15 inches.) 

Put a flower or a bow on the top of the slippers
