I think everyone should have a sassy pair of red shoes--even babies, so here are the ones I made for a friend of mine who's having a baby soon:



Those are too cute!  I just got some red yarn myself.  I'm going to put strawberry buttons on them.  Smiley  I used Bernat Softee Chunky for the cream-colored ones that I made.  It works pretty well for these and it feels so soft.

I finished mine (for a cousin) in a little over an hour. I <i>was</i> watching the dog show, while trying to remember why I hate crocheting. Yep, I remembered that once I started on the strap. Not too sure if I like it all that much, but if I don't I can alway change it, right?

You're not too sure if you like it all that much?  What are you talking about?  I think those booties are darling. Great job. And I LOVE the blue yarn you used.  What did you use?

IMHO, I wouldn't change a thing.

I second daria's opinion!

Here is a pair of  one-hour booties sans buttons. For some reason, even w/ the zany fun fur, these are a bit more traditional than I'd expected (or wanted).

Anyway, here's what I did:

I followed the pattern in SNBN using  fun fur and purple tencel together. For the top of the bootie I  used only tencel(when it's time to turn in the pattern, I simply dropped the fun fur).

With the tencel only, I crocheted a single, 5-inch chain then double crocheted around the edge of the bootie (the instep, heel, around to the front) then did another 5 inch chain and tied the two chains into a bow.

Oops! Sorry. I meant to say I wasn't too sure about the crocheted strap. I love the booties! They're extremely easy and quite fun. I used Lamb's Pride Bulky in Blue Flannel, which I made a special trip to one of my LYS's, as all I had in my stash was Periwinkle and I wanted to make a "manly" set for my cousin's baby boy.

Now that I see a pair with ties on them, I'm thinking I might do that instead -- take the crocheted straps off and add ties. Or maybe I'll just do that on the next pair I make, 'cause I definitely will make more of these!
