Crochet Baby Shoes with Bow
Using the same sole as I used for the sandals, but just single layered as I was running out of white wool I added part of the lower part of the boots and just added a little strap for around her ankle.
I felt it was missing something so I added a large white bow with the last of my white ball. Super securing it to the ankle strap as I didn’t want it to come off if she or Arron start playing with it.
I used a clear press stud on each shoes to fasten again sewing it on securely.
I made them in acrylic wool as I know they will need washing, it’s easier for a busy Mum than using pure wool.
Love the way they have come out. I’d seen something similar on the internet, but as I was watching TV I didn’t want to follow a pattern, so I knew the boot front from having to do it so many times when I was making them!
What would I do differently?
I’d make the shoe and ankle strap all in one, as I made them separately and although you can’t really see the join, I know it is there. Or maybe attached them as I crochet through the chain that made the strap.
I’d also double sole them as I love the way it worked on the sandal, just this time I was out of wool. I was actually playing yarn chicken making the bows! Time for a nip to the wool shop.
What’s Up Next?
My nephew’s girlfriend is having a little boy so I’m going make a few bits and pieces for them, including my favourite cardigan and probably a blanket or two. Maybe some little boy shoes too seeing as I seem to be in a footwear making phase.
Also want to start my Christmas (yes the big days is now on my list!) presents and I’ve seen a bag from Bag O’ Day crochet on You Tube I’m thinking of making in to a cushion for the girls. I think I’ll do it in three different shades of Pink as they all love pink, but maybe a bag to go with it. What do you think?
What’s on your hooks or needles? Or maybe you do a different craft let me know I love hearing about crafts.
