    1. You could make and donate to maybe the baby nursery at your local hospital or any resale shops for charity such as goodwill we have a resale shop the proceeds go to the childrens home donate directly to them in larger cities they probably get a lot of babies from abusive or neglectful parents. I've donated crocheted iems to the one I mentioned because of who the proceeds help they sell well too even if it's small items like these they make a little and every bit helps can you tell I used to volunteer not a children's home but troubled youth keep them busy and hopefully out of trouble

  10. these are so adorable & I am trying to make some for my cousin who is expecting a baby girl, however I have a question, is the peep space supposed to be off set or is it supposed to be centered? I have tried this pattern at least 7 times, but I just don't know why it doesn't look correct

  14. W33z13 and others:

    I've noticed that sometimes the pattern gets offset (the peep is supposed to be in the middle of the shoe) when you don't do the first single crochet in the same space as where you did the slip stitch in the row below. I'm counting on you doing the single crochet in *that* space in my numbers. Hope that helps!

  17. Granny Zizi:
    A 4 inch shoe will fit a baby girl at about 0-3 months, and a 4.5 inch shoes will fit a baby girl who is 3-6 months. It really depends, though, on the little girl! Hopefully that's a little helpful, though!

  18. I have had this pattern bookmarked for awhile. I finally sat down to make one, and it is soooo adorable! The other shoe will have to wait until tomorrow, but the first one is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern!

  27. Im having trouble with the insole instructions."attach to the inside of shoe with wrong sides facing each other" are these istruction in case of using different color yarns?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Anonymous:

    The instructions are basically to keep the fronts of the stitches facing outward. The backsides of the stitches will be sewn together. It isn't a very big deal, as most people don't see inside the shoe.

    However, it is a sign of quality! The inside of your coats (or other tailored clothes) that have lining have the seams are sewn facing each other. This way,the nice fabric is what shows - whether you're looking at the outside of the coat or you happen to see the inside.

  29. how would you make this bigger? I would love to try to make some for my 2 year old, but I am not sure about the increases to do so?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have a two-year-old as well. I haven't made any for her, but I'm sure that those would be super cute, too! I think you'd need to add another round or two on the sole. And then the rest of the shoe would be all changed around as well.

      Or... you could also try to crochet two strands of yarn and use a bigger hook and follow the same pattern. I have no idea what size that you give you, but it might work - and it would be a lot more simple....

      I'd love to know what you try!

    2. I might just try that. I will def let you know bc I think these are adorable and she would love to wear them around the house.

  35. Thanks so much for posting this pattern! I am new to the craft and made a dress and diaper cover from Youtube videos. I have had these shoes "pinned' for a while and decided to try them even though I have never really read a pattern before. (would have loved a video to follow, hint hint ;) The one I just did turned out just right! Thanks for the great instructions and pictures. I'm excited to make the other one tomorrow and send them off to my sister and her sweet baby. :)

    1. Shawna,

      Thanks for letting me know that it worked out! I've thought of making a video... but I think I'd feel so cheesy! But I'll see if I can take the hint. I would just need to figure out how to manage the camera (I suppose with a tripod) and my two energetic kids! Maybe I'll find a sitter someday and do that. LOL, it might be a while before it happens! :)

  36. I am new to crochet, but I am having trouble with round 5. What does sc 5 in sp. mean? Somehow I keep having more stitches than needed.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for your question!

      "sc 5 in sp" means this: Single crochet 5 times in space. The "space" is the chain 5 from the previous round (where you chain 5 and skip 6 stitches).

      If you need a diagram or another picture, let me know. I'll see what I can do.

      Hope that helps!

    2. Thanks, I understand now! So cute!

  38. I have looked everywhere for a good "dress up" slipper for my daughter! She is 3, toddler size 8 - I sized up to a K hook, added a few to the beginning chain and a round to the sole. I'm sure it's not perfect but I almost couldn't finish the first one cause she wouldn't take it off! So excited to make the other one, and so so happy I finally came across this pattern in my search this afternoon!

    1. That's great you were able to size it for her! I've been trying to make slippers for my three year old, and I forget every time how I did it before I can write it. And I love that she loved it so much that you almost couldn't finish! Cutie. :)

  40. your pattern was pretty diffacult for me to follow I feel the opening for the toe was on the side and not directly over the toes.So i've decided not to use thus pattern even tho i like the bootie

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you! I've noticed that the toes can go off to the side if you don't do the start of each round just right. In my pattern, the first sc needs to go in the very first stitch. Some people accidentally do the ch 1, then sc in the next st. That will result in the toe being off centered.

      It is a slightly difficult pattern but if you'd like to try an easier one, this one is quite simple: http://annavirginiafashion.blogspot.com/2010/11/baby-flapper-girl-hat-pattern.html

  45. I previously left a comment but I've read all comments now I think and want to ask you if it's alright to donate them to charity resale shop I wouldn't profit from the sale the proceeds go to our local children's home I've crocheted tons of mostly small things using my scrap yarn they tell me it sells well and keep bringing it. Let me know if that's ok thanks again these are so adorable and I definitely wouldn't take credit for your pattern I could pin a little tag on them with your site url.

    1. I'm totally okay with you donating them! I need to update my blog to let everyone know that I just don't want them selling the pattern for profit. But you made the baby booties so go ahead and decide what you'd like to do with those!
