Crochet Baby Sandals

First of all let me start with a big 'thank you' to everyone for the wonderful comments on last week's blog post Taffy, a birdie decoration and a pot.  I'm so glad Taffy brought a smile to your week :)  I am entering my Birdie Decoration in The Crafty Network's February Craft Challenge - Winter Blues.  Voting is now open, so if you wouldn't mind popping over to place a vote my way I would be very grateful :)

I had a bit of a play this week making some baby sandals.  I know of at least 3 people having babies this summer so thought these may come in handy for one of them in particular!


Here is the link to the pattern if you would like to make some for yourself.
I adapted it slightly by making a half treble foundation with a puff stitch edge for the straps.
The soles are just over 3" long.  I am guessing suitable for 0-6months.


 I'm going to settle down with a nice cup of tea now and pop over to Handmade Harbour to browse all the skilled craftspeople taking part in Handmade Monday this week.


Wait a minute there's something missing??
I think I need a biscuit too!  A Jammy Dodger would be nice :)


Oh! Look at this!  Here's one I made earlier.


Believe it or not this Jammy Dodger took me just over 2 hours to make!
Just as well I didn't have to make a whole packet!
If you would like to make one to go with your cup of tea this afternoon, here is the link, Crochet and Crafts - According to Matt

Enjoy your cuppa and your biscuit :)
See you next week!

  1. Let's hope we have some weather nice enough for babies to wear sandals!
    Love the jammie dodger - isn't it amazing how some things can just take ages to make :)

  2. Those baby sandals looks so cute. I think with all that stitching going into that jammy dodger, you deserve a whole pack of the edible kind :-)

  3. The baby sandals are just so gorgeous - do you think that they would translate into adult sized ones ;) How weird is it that I saw another of these biscuits just the other day on here: http://thestitchsharer.com/2013/02/23/jammy-dodger-crochet-pattern-tried-and-tested/
    I am finding it hard to believe that it took 2 hours to make (not that I doubt you but it is small!) Hope you have a great week.

    1. This is where I saw the Jammie Dodger first but I went to the original site to get the pattern. I couldn't believe it took me two hours either!

    1. Hi Gertie, I'm so glad you popped over. I have been trying to comment on the posts you have put up on Handmade Monday for a while now but the comments always come back to my inbox saying 'message failed'. No idea why? I tried 3 times on one occasion!

      The cat mug belongs to my daughter, it was given to her a long time ago now by a previous boyfriend!!!! Shhhh! Don't tell her :)

  15. Things always take longer than I anticipated they would, it's a constant source of frustration! Definitely worth it though, the jammy dogder is really cool! But it's the sandals that are my favourite, totally gorgeous! :)
