I am excited to share another new sandal pattern today! Since we found out our little bun-in-the-oven is a girl, I am going into nesting overdrive, and crochet ideas (especially little girl ideas) have been popping into my head. I love how these Baby Barefoot Gladiator Sandals turned out, and this little baby’s mama loved them too!
These barefoot gladiator sandals are a snap to make! You can make a pair in half an hour, and the button detail is unique and adorable.
Make sure you are sewing your buttons on very well! Baby’s can’t easily rip them off, but make sure you have taken extra measures to secure them. You can even dab some super glue or clear nail polish over the threads, and take care not to leave baby unattended.

With all your straps dangling, you must sew on your buttons to make it look like a sandal. Your top strap will go off to the right, and the rest of your straps will go off to the left. Sew all 5 buttons so the straps can wrap around baby’s foot and line up evenly. Take extra care to make sure the buttons are sewn on very well, and don’t leave baby unattended while wearing these shoes. Push each button through the end of each strap, where you created a button hole by skipping stitches before sc back into the chain. I like to leave the bottom two buttons done up to for quicker on and off of the sandals.
