Bitty Bow Baby Sandals

The last of the baby sandals from this custom order are these Bitty Bow Baby Sandals. It was quite hard for me to take photos of these so please ignore the quality. I got better over time though! I found the free pattern from Bethany Dearden of Whistle and Ivy. I remember they were incredibly easy to make! I will most definitely be using more of Bethany’s designs in the future.

I used Red Heart Super Saver in White with a 5.0mm hook. I made the 6-9 month size. Turned out perfect! I loved the whole idea of using two soles per sandal. Made them so much more sturdy. Sorry I don’t have much more than that for these sandals 😦 I’m really trying to write better notes now.

Hello Kitty Baby Booties

These were the second pair of sandals in the custom order I did back in April 2015. This pair was not as simple or easy as the first pair. I wasn’t able to find a pattern exactly like what I was given. So what I did was I found a free pattern that was similar and that the customer approved of for the bootie and used a free pattern for the Hello Kitty face applique that I then sewed to the top of the bootie.

For the booties themselves I used the Snuggly Wuggly Booties free pattern by the Loops & Threads Design Team. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Perfect Pink and a 5.5mm hook. Since it was so long ago I only have what I have written down to go off of. I made the bigger of the two sizes which I can only assume was to just receive the desired length I needed. To achieve the height of the shoe I did two less rows than the pattern called for.

I used the Hello Kitty Applique and Mini Bow free pattern by Naomi Garcia of LanaDeBaa. I used Red Heart Super Saver in White and a 3.75mm hook. I don’t have anything else written down so I don’t think I ran into any problems. I embroidered a face and sewed it to the top of the booties.

I absolutely LOVE the way these turned out!! So stinkin cute!!

Flower Power Baby Sandal

These little baby sandals were part of a custom order that I completed in April 2015. I was given several pictures of different baby sandals from the internet and asked if I could make them in specific colors. I’ll get to the other sandals soon. So I did my research and was glad to be able to find patterns for them all!! And they were free. Bonus!!

The first pair I made was these Flower Power Baby Sandals. I found them on Lovely Little Life by Naomi Wade. They were a cute, relatively easy pattern to work up. I don’t remember having much issues except for the chain bands across the top being a little troublesome. The only differences I have note of are that there was no gauge listed so to get the needed length I had to do the third and last round of the sole in hdc. Oh and I bought buttons to use instead of making my own, but that’s not a real difference.

If I were to make them again I might think about doubling up the sole. So you would make two for each shoe and then sew/crochet them together before continuing on. Just to make them a little more sturdy.

They turned out amazingly adorable and the customer loved them! So they’ve earned an A in my book!
