Baby Sandals

Please tell me I’m not the only one who loves baby shoes and booties? Anytime I see a pair of newborn booties, I think about when my girls were so tiny and how I get so see tiny feet like those in just a few months. I fall to pieces. They are so cute!

Well, since it’s summer, I decided to make some fashion sandals in case I have a baby girl (again). These sandals use the same stitch that I used for my Spring Lavender Dishcloth pattern a while back. I love the lemon peel stitch so much, I just had to use it again!

Lemon Peel Baby Sandals (1)

The lemon peel stitch is basically working sc and dc every other stitch, so it’s very simple, but gives such a beautiful texture. Since the stitching is so easy, the Lemon Peel Baby Sandals are pretty quick to work up and will definitely make you swoon when you see them on a sweet baby girl’s little feet.

Sandals Beads

Instead of using buttons, I used some faux pearls that I had leftover from making earrings and necklaces for my bride’s maids. I got married 4 years ago, btw…so yeah.

So enjoy this pretty little pattern! Happy Crocheting!
