Just Like Mommy’s Sandals

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I have been looking for a cute pair of sandals for Little Lovely to wear this summer. Unfortunately Little Lovely has a bit more than her fair share of baby fat, including little fat pads on the tops of her feet, which make them too chubby to fit into pretty much any baby shoe I have found.

Of course, you know what they say about necessity being the mother of invention.

Since Little Lovely isn’t walking yet anyway, I decided to crochet her a pair of barefoot sandals. And since I was crocheting them myself, I decided to make them to match my own flip flops.
