Crochet Flip Flops

A friend found these cute baby sandals and wondered if I could make them (I could and did!). There is a free pattern over at Whistle and Ivy. She even has some videos to go along with her instructions - super easy. For me, the pattern ran too small. I ended up making the larger size(6-9mo.) and if I remember correctly they ended up being 3.5 inches long. The middle size (3-6mo) ended up around 3 inches long.

If I end up making them again I will probably make the top strap skinnier. I thought they looked fine but once I saw them on the tiny baby feet the top strap looks too thick - but sill super cute!

I've also been making washcloths/dishcloths while watching Big Brother (my FAVORITE summer show), riding the bust to work and on my lunch break. What can I say, I like to make use of my time! I found a really good pattern that doesn't require much thinking. Three of these will be included in a gift for a soon to be born a baby boy. I'm not quite sure what I will do with the rest but I figure they are cute little gifts (paired with a smell-good body wash) for people here and there if I don't have anything. Maybe even guests? Who knows, maybe I can sell a few...

  1. Wondering what the flip-flops would look like in a brown "sandle" color? They are so cute! The washcloths would be cute with a custom made soap bar too...I like the variegated one in the center the bestest!
