Frog Baby Booties Crochet Pattern

As I've mentioned a few times before, I love Disney movies!
I always seem to find ways to relate to the characters, that makes the movie even more magical.
One of these characters happened to be Tiana from "Princess and The Frog", as I admired her hard work and determination as she worked towards her dreams... Disney life lesson, check!
Now just throw a frog prince into the story, you've got a winner!

  5. This is great! I did; however, change the cheek color to red in order to match them to the hat I made using a frog hat designed by Stitch 11....http://stitch11.com/0-3-month-frog-hat I did not realize you had a pattern for a frog hat until I had completed the one from Stitch 11. I will post pics of both projects here when I have the booties finished<<still finishing up eyes.

  14. These are just darlin' booties. Your pattern works up really well and I use you basic bootie pattern on all the booties I make. Thank you for such lovely, easy to follow instructions & patterns. Also happy when a new pattern appears on your blog. A brand new pair is going to my grandson in South Africa.

    1. I tried making the soles (samples) with Peaches & Crème 100% cotton yarn (can be purchased at Walmart), with a size E and a size F crochet hook. It works, but the sole of the shoe definitely does not come out to 9cm (3.5") for the 0-6 mos pattern. It turned out to be larger. The Peaches & Crème is a 4 ply yarn. I tend to crochet tight too, so I'm thinking of going with a different yarn. Perhaps baby weight of some kind. The directions say cotton blend, but I haven't been able to find the exact yarn per directions. Hope this helps.

  27. Hi Olivia,

    Thank you for sharing this pattern. I really want to try it but i have a question about the "Top of Shoe". In round 1, you crochet only trough the back loop, but do you have to do that also in round 2 and 3 or only in round 1?
    Thank you.
    Greets,
    Kim
