Gingerbread Man Baby Booties - Free Crochet Pattern


Back when I was a tiny tot I would always end up covered in flour from head to toe as my family baked a bunch of Christmas gingerbread cookies! 
This has been a tradition since I can't remember when, so till this day I still get outrageously excited when I get to put on my apron, grab my cookie cutters out of the cupboard and bake an array of differently shaped cookies... I can't wait for the day when I'll be able to pass on this special memory to my own children (even if they make a catastrophic mess like I always did)!

Christmas is still a few weeks away, but I couldn't wait any long to get my hands into some dough, which is why I'm planning to bake some cookies in a couple of days time!

In an attempt to behave and not start baking too early, I ended up quickly grabbing some Paintbox Yarn skeins in warm fudge tones and rosy reds out of my stash. But as you can see, my cookie obsession flowed over into my crochet which is how I came up with this darling (and scrumptious pair) of gingerbread man baby booties!

With the festive season in full swing, be sure to crochet some adorable Baubles or a sweet pair of Santa Claus Baby Booties!

Cashmere Avocado Baby Booties - Giveaway + Crochet Pattern


Autumn is full of quiet strolls through the park and picnics underneath the shade of a big oak tree... One of my favourite things to do in Autumn is crocheting with a variety of soft and luxurious wools, as it's one of the most enjoyable ways to get ready for hibernation during the cooler months.

Some time ago the incredibly creative people over at Lion Brand sent me a large bundle of exquisite yarns to try out. Within the assortment I spotted two skeins of the softest cashmere wool, which I couldn't resist whipping up into this pair of adorable Cashmere Avocado Baby Booties! This wool offers such an exceptional warmth, whilst remaining lightweight... Perfect for creating a darling pair of booties to help keep even the tiniest tootsies warm and cosy!

If you've had a recent addition to your family this Autumn you'll be excited to hear that I've finally added the pattern for these sweet little booties to my Etsy and Craftsy shops!

Chilly evenings are an invitation to create more than one pair of booties, so be sure to also create a pair of Pink Lady Booties and a dainty pair of Mint Macaroon Baby Booties!
