I made some too. I crocheted the edge for a tie closure. Actually I made these a long time ago but am finally posting!

i need to make these PRONTO. any ideas of how to make them more "unisex" looking? i'm going to be making them with lion baby soft (sportweight) most likely tripple stranded,  but since we don't know what the baby in question is going to be gender wise, i wanted to make them gender neutral.

I like green and yellow when you're not sure.... and heck, tiny babies don't know the difference!

Wow, this takes me back. Just a little over 10 months ago, I went into labour. The baby wasn't coming fast, so the doctor sent me home for a few hours and while my husband rushed to clean the house ('cos we knew our parents would be coming into town) I picked up some needles and knitted a red pair of these booties. Ruby red slippers for my daughter Ruby Violet who arrived about 30 hours later.

It's a sweet pattern. Good luck keeping them on a baby's feet though.

Oh no! Really?

Because baby pulls them off or because they just don't stay on well? Any tips on modifying it?

These booties aren't particularly flawed, but most babies won't keep anything (including socks) on their feet for very long. That's why you see so many babies with those little leather booties with the elastics around the ankles -- they're the only things that the little suckers can't kick off. Still, it's nice to have some booties in baby's wardrobe, so don't sweat it too much. And the strap on these ones does help if it's tight enough. Maybe the baby you're making them for will be particularly chill and wont wiggle out of them.

oh I made these too! This is the first thing I made from SnB, I love how simple it is and how it seems to just appear fully formed.  Anyway these are the ones I made for my best friend's sister's baby-to-be.



Awww too cute!

Oh my goodness, the little silk roses are perfect on those!  I didn't even think of doing other embellishments (other than the buttons).  So cute.
