Crochet Tutorial: Flamingo Feet Baby Booties

Crochet Tutorial: Flamingo Feet Baby Booties

I read a quote the other day which said:
Advice from a flamingo
Wade into Life,
Stand out in a crowd,
Spend time with your flock,
Find the right balance
Show your true color,
Keep your beak clean,
And don’t forget to get your feet wet!!

So, with those sentiments, I bring you my Fun Feathered Flamingo Feet Baby Booties! Start out on the right foot, or in this case, the right feet with this great project! Flocks of love were put into making these tiny slippers that pack a big PINK punch!!

These booties are one of the most versatile patterns I have ever designed. Although these slippers were designed for a 6 month old baby, changing hook sizes can increase the size of the pattern for a bit older infant. But I don’t stop there, choose a basic slipper pattern and follow along on the crocodile stitch and add the other embellishments to make your slippers ANY size!! See tips in my Notes section below.

Along with Flamingos, I provide the written instructions to take this pattern from pink to white in these beautiful Sweet Swan Slippers!

I was doing some online shopping when I came across this pair of swan slippers. Here is where I found inspiration to create this lovely pair in crochet!!

Using these guidelines, branch out to make Ducks, Geese, Peacocks, Toucans, Parrots, Cockateils, Pelicans, or any other fun bird! The possibilities are endless! What a fun way to have birds of a different feather, flocking together! Get started here and remember to read the Notes section for these great tips and more!

Crochet Tutorial: Knee-High Socks

Crochet Tutorial: Knee-High Socks

Sometimes I see a photo and consider what it would take to design something into a crochet pattern based on just that-a photo. That is what inspired these floral pastel knee-socks. I was sent the same photo of a pair of knit socks numerous times, and realized that once again, I would need to challenge myself to see what I could do by taking that knit sock concept from a single picture and translate it into crochet. I have to admit this was not an easy task.

First, socks are not easy to begin with. That alone had me hesitating, but knowing myself and how, once faced with a challenge, I don’t back down. I decided to just forge ahead and see where this took me and I was not disappointed.

As the socks took shape, the more excited I became. It took a total of two full days and a lot of long hours of designing and filming to bring you this tutorial. To be honest, I will say that at one point I saw double and almost pulled my hair out trying to troubleshoot how to make this work, but hopefully I have ironed out all the wrinkles to bring you another tutorial that is easy to follow.

I used pastel colors in my pattern but the ideas are endless when it comes to color combinations. I am excited to see your creators choices when making your own pair. These are exceptionally comfortable and fun to wear. In my photos, I have them over a pair of creme color leggings, but around the house these would be so nice to wear with your favorite night shirt or shorts and t-shirt! Have fun creating this fabulous pair of knee-socks!

Below you will see a couple photos of my finished work and then the video tutorial. Below the video shows the written pattern for these socks. Happy Hookin’!
