These baby sandals are so sexy on baby girl's feet. Wow. It looks so beautiful if baby wears this pair when she goes dancing with her favorite dance tune. Mommy will be very happy. I like the yellow yarn used here, my fav color.

I love these adorable sandals! My sister is expecting her first baby in October, and we are anxiously waiting to find out if it is a boy or a girl. I will definitely be keeping this pattern in mind in case she is having a girl. They are just too cute!

Another great quick and easy project to use as a fill in project between major custom jobs. Ive always got a quick 10 minutes to spare on cute little items like this and they help me use up excess yarn that I have plus I have a baby shower gift to add to my treasury for upcoming deliveries.

do you have a video tutorial?

Hi jennirumrum, No, I'm sorry, we don't have a video tutorial for this project. That's a great idea, though! I'll pass it along to our video department. Thank you! Julia, editor of AllFreeCrochet

i think these very petty can't wait do apar,

I could not get the pattern to open at all.

Just click on "click here for crochet pattern" and it should take you directly to the blogger's pattern.

Wow, teaparty and kayemmdee, that is just rude and disrespectful to the designer. If u dont like the pattern then dont make them. This type of sandal is called a baby barefoot sandal and they are not meant to be a functional outdoor walking shoe. They are intended to be a cute accessory and are no more dangerous than wearing a pair of shoes. You shouldn't be leaving your baby unattended anyways.

p.s. I wasted about 30 pieces of printer paper, spent about 40 minutes formatting the font, and have no useful pattern to show for my effort. I don't know how uncomfortable they would be since I didn't even get a chance to try to make them.

I don't know why I cannot print this document. Some of the pages are illegible and none of the picture print at all. I am very disappointed. Normally I don't have any problems with you patterns and don't understand what the problem is with this one.

That's the dumbest thing I ever saw! Make some gray rope, tie it around a baby's foot, and stick a flower on it. What a waste of time. they aren't even cute. I agree with Kayemmdee, that's ridiculous. Give us stuff we can use, please?

These don't look like baby sandals. They look like flowers tied on to a baby's foot. In fact, with the thick yarn / strip running under the foot, they look like they would be uncomfortable. And maybe unsafe. I would never make these for any baby.
