I can’t believe how time flies! Summer is already halfway over. When my sister told me when my niece’s baby blessing would be, I was really excited to make her some white blessing shoes. I was originally going to make her a pair of Little Dot Mary Jane Booties, but then I changed my mind. It’s summertime, this little princess needs some crochet gladiator sandals! I wrote this Button Gladiator Sandals pattern just for my sweet niece.

They are actually pretty quick to make. It took me almost as long to position and sew on the buttons as it did to make one shoe, and they don’t use very much yarn. They will be perfect for baby showers too!
