Baby Flip Flops

These are probably the cutest little shoes I’ve ever made! Who can resist tiny flip flops? A trusted customer showed me a picture of a similar looking flip flop asking if I could make her a pair. So I searched online for something with a pattern. I found a chart that is in what I believe is Russian? It’s not English and that didn’t stop me before! Also, it is a chart so it’s all the symbols which are pretty universal I think and a really good picture tutorial. So pretty simple to follow along.

I used my trusty 5.00mm hook along with Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee, White, and Perfect Pink. I used Coffee for the bottom sole and White for the top sole. Yes a double sole!! Woohoo! In order to get the needed length of 4.25 inches the first round was done in double crochet and the second and third rounds in single crochet. Everything else I did was the same in the photo tutorial. They’re clear enough that I was able to count the stitches and chains needed. I used some embroidery floss to whip up a couple of flowers and sewed them along the strap. So adorable!

Peek-A-Boo Sandals

The second of the two booties I made for baby summer boy was this pair of Peek-A-Boo Sandals by MA Santos of Crochet Zone. These are also a free pattern!! I used Red Heart Super Saver in Light Blue and Coffee with a 5.0mm hook.

What can I say about these other than I loved them?! Double soled. Score! Adorable pop of color from the surface slip stitching. I really like how MA has her soles a different color than her uppers so I just had to do the same. Turned out amazing! So much better than one solid color I think. Definitely going to be doing the same for every other future sandal.

Most definitely keeping Crochet Zone on my radar for future patterns. Very well written and easy to follow. And totally cute!!

Baby Moccasins

One of Luke’s cousins was having her baby shower back in May of 2015. (She’s having another baby so stayed tuned for even more baby goodies!!) Naturally I had to make my gifts. Having a summer baby, and a boy to boot, I was really at a loss of what to make. So I settled on some sandals (because all babies need booties), a lovey, and a stuffed animal. So I searched and searched and finally settled on two booties that I thought would be ok for a boy.

This post is going to focus on the first pair that I made, Baby Moccasins. These are a free pattern by Mon Petit Violon. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Coffee and Buff with a 3.75mm hook. I don’t have any notes for this one. I do however remember a couple of things. I believe I made the 0-6 month size. But I remember it turning out so tiny. I also remember the “Front” bit being a little difficult despite the pictures in the pattern. I *think* I did it slightly different but don’t ask me what exactly that was because I haven’t a clue.

They hardly took any time at all to complete and ended up looking totally cute and adorable!! Even for a boy in the middle of summer! Here’s a little preview of what’s to come in the next couple of posts 🙂

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!!
