|My niece, Emily, wearing her flip flops and getting ready |
to go shopping with her purse!
Aren’t these just the cutest little baby flip flops?! If you are anything like my husband, you’d say, “They don’t offer any support whatsoever,” or “She can’t even walk yet!”
But, I think quite differently than my husband (at least when it comes to crochet projects!) So, when I found this pattern, I just knew I had to try it for my niece, Emily. She was almost one year old at the time.
|Working hard on putting her flip flops on (and taking them off again!)|
I bought a cute outfit for her in some turquoise/purplish colors and I wanted the shoes to match, so I decided to go with a light and dark purple flip flop.
The pattern includes both the pattern for the shoe and the flower. Here is the free pattern I used: http://melodyscrochetitems-melody88.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/crochet-baby-slipper-pattern.html
Pretty simple! I made two soles for each show to make it a little bit thicker. Then, I decorated them with a tiny flower. Sooooo easy and soooooo adorable.
I used a 4.25mm crochet hook and "I Love this Yarn" from Hobby Lobby. They have so many colors to choose from!
I made another pair for a friend of mine who recently had a baby girl. They make a perfect girl gift and are cheap to make because they use such a small amount of yarn.
