With summer winding down here, I hesitated to post this pattern. I mean, Hobby Lobby already has Thanksgiving decorations up! Here in Vegas, however, we have a good 2 months of warm weather left, so I decided to post it. Plus, as summer fades away here, that means my friends in the southern hemisphere are gearing up for spring! Wherever you are, I hope you enjoy the crochet pattern for these Bitty Bow Baby Sandals.
Sandals are really fun and easy to make. These are no exception! There is a bit of construction work, but I included a full video tutorial (my video skills are developing, so please bear with the video pattern). These shoes are soft and comfy for baby. My Little gets compliments whenever she wears hers. I need some in each color!

Baby Sandals Construction:
Use your darning needle to attach the opposite side of your bow strap. Going in and out, sew it to the sc on the other side of the shoe. Make sure to thoroughly weave in the ends.
To make the flap into a bow, pinch it with your fingers (pinch it so the edges are going upwards, and the inside bumps up) and tie a knot of yarn using the same color leaving a long tail (Keep it a little bit loose) Make sure the knot is on the under side. Then, using the tail, wrap the yarn around the center of the strap 5 or 6 times. Tie off. You can also secure it with a dab of hot glue.
