Pattern Description:

Irish dancing shoes sized for the tiniest of baby feet to toddler size. In preparing for a Celtic Weekend, I was looking for baby items that were Irish and the Baby Ghillies were created!

The traditional Irish ghillies were the inspiration for this pattern. The ghillies are soft, black on black, dancing shoes. These delightful dancing shoes are an original Irish Hooks & Yarn design. Change the bootie and ribbon colors to create ballet slippers for your princess.
