A friend of mine from boarding school had a baby girl earlier this Summer, and when I knew she was having a baby girl I started knitting. It took me just a day in June to knit up these adorable little baby sandals.
I used this pattern for these, but customised by adding a couple of crochet flowers.
I picked very girly colours and was lucky to have them all in my stash. They are all from the DROPS Muskat range.
I love knitting these sandals, there are five straps that have to be knit and then they all have to be sewn up (the only thing I am not a huge fan of).
I would have knit booties for my friend, but as she lives in Dubai where it’s hot all year round. These seemed a better choice.
I had some lovely purple buttons left in my stash too.
