I was all ready to work on some sewing projects for my class and my machine stopped working. It was quite sad but it gave me a chance to finish up a crochet project that I had started that had been relegated to the back burner. My friends seem to be going through another baby boom right now which is quite exciting because I have a reason to make little baby items again! Especially little girl baby items. . . which leads me to this fascination with crochet baby shoes that I seem to have developed. This started with the munchkin hat and loafers that I made earlier this year. And now I love these little Simple Summer Sandals from Two Girls Patterns. Two of my friends are having little girls this summer, so they just HAD to have some little cutesy sandals!
I did modify the pattern a bit because I couldn’t decide if I wanted to make the shoes with the flowers or without – they were so cute both ways! So I added a button:
… so the flowers could be removed!
I’m pretty proud of myself for coming up with such a cute and versatile solution.
So much fun to make and finish out! I used Caron Simple Soft in Grey Heather for the soles and Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller Washable Ewe in Duckling and Zinnia. Love little baby shoes.
