This pattern was requested by Toni, one of my new followers! She was saying that she can never find any sandal patterns for her 18-month old son, Axton, and after looking online, I realized how true it was! So I created this pattern in honor of her - Comfy Toddler Sandals! The double sole makes it super sturdy and comfy, and the strap ensures that the shoe stays on, and the puffy fabric paint at the bottom keeps them from slipping, no matter how active they may be :)
This project would be a good one for crocheters just starting to make baby booties - no fancy soles or decreasing for the toes - just basic stitches! I have included a bit of a photo tutorial to make it easier, as well.
I made these in boy colors, but with some cute girly colors, these would work great for girl's shoes too!
These shoes were designed with fat little feet in mind - but if you wanted to make them skinnier, you can make the strap shorter so it fits around skinnier feet better.
This pattern fits toddlers around 18 months old - about a size 6 shoe size.
I learned how to crochet years ago, but re-discovered my love for it last December. Since then, I have been hooking like crazy whenever I can find time!
