Ok tyhey aren't as great as some other creations, but I'm proud. I've only been crochet since just before christmas. My great niece was born recently (I'm only 34) and I wanted her to have warm feet. so instead of sewing booties I crochet.
I did all without a pattern, just used my sons old new born slippers as a guide.
here they are
thank you for the very nice comments.
I did kind of make the pattern up as I went along, but I'll try to remember.
start Chain 14 then single crochet in each chain. when at the end do 4 single in the end chain, but instead of going back, go down the chain on the other side using single crochet. when get to other end do 4 single crochet, then you have a long oval or straight.
I then went along the crochet with single stitich in each till I got to the end (the 4 in the end chain on previous row). This time to make it more oval I did 2 single stitich in each of the single 4 stitches which were in one chain loop in the row before.
then went down the other side. therefore this left me with a larger oval and two rows on the oval.
I kept on doing this increasing end method on eah oval row until I felt it was big enough for newborn feet. I had old slipper of son for guide. Once you are happy with the size about 3-3 1/2 inches by 1 inch oval = made the sole.
Then the next 2 rows/rounds I did not add any extra stitiches, so 1 single stich at a time. the next row I dereased on the ends by only two at each oval end. the next row I did not decrease. The next row I decreased by 4 at each oval end. next row I did not decrease and the next row I decreased by 4 again.
This is hard to explain as I am not a pattern person. bassically I was building a oval tiny basket about 3-31/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inch tall. The basket sides go straight up. I was decreasing on the oval ends and not the sides as this made it do what I wanted. When I had enough height (I felled out my son's slipper to guide me.
On the top I wanted enclosed, so I crochet 2/3 of way doen the top endge then hained stitched away from the top, but across to other side. this made it look a little like a Mary Jane bootie. Then I carried down the end inside the 2/3 top of bootie. I kept going round till I got to chain again and crochet along this and down otherside. I kept doing this till I got to the centre, then tied off.
the flower was 8 single chain in a magic loop. then treble crochet, then 2 chain, miss 2 stitches, then treble crochet, repeat till back to begining and cast off.
attached flower to bootie on front using old vintage cordinating button found in stash. I think button came from a old little girly outfit of mine. only had two!
sorry about spelling etc . typing quickly during lunch.
just ask for clarification
