I'm lazy when it comes to making baby booties. I don't like fussing with tiny hooks, thin yarn and lots of turns and decreases. I also don't feel comfortable using buttons. So I thought of how I could make a baby bootie using 1 strip of crochet fabric and came up with these little gems. The nice part is I used left over sock yarn! I named them Origami booties because making them involves folding the strip in such a way that the bootie and sole are created at the same time. To complete; either seaming the edges with a darning needle or single crochet around the edges works equally well. Enjoy! As an added bonus, there are instructions for creating duckie booties as well!

I first learned how to knit from my grandmother as a 6 year old. Later as a teenager I taught myself to crochet. I had to lay my hook aside while my children were very young due to the high demand of care my son required (born disabled). I did start sewing as I designed outfits for my son that used velcro openings instead of buttons and zippers to enable him to dress and undress himself. Once my children were old enough I picked up my needles and hooks and relearned the crafts. There is rarely a day that goes by that I'm not designing a new pattern and always crocheting and knitting.
