Minion Inspired Baby Booties Crochet Pattern

Some days I wish I had some cute little minions to help me out! 
I'm sure you've all been there before too, where you're overwhelmed by work and life and just feel like curling up in a ball and begging the nearest person to end your life... Ok, that's a bit overly dramatic, but you get my point!

However, it's on those days that I'm reminded of something that Walt Disney said, "It's kind of fun to do the impossible!". And you know what, that's so true! When you challenge yourself (especially on those tough days) you end up not only feeling happy, but also as a force to be reckoned with!

...And if all else fails, there's always Downton Abbey and crochet to cheer you up!

  4. Hello,
    I'll start off by saying these are adorable!
    I am semi new to crochet, I picked it up pretty quickly.
    The not having a slip stitch between rows for the sole is really throwing me off though. The first 2 rows go just fine but following the instructions for the 3rd but don't quite make it all the way to the end of the sole. Do you have any tips or me or an easier way of keeping track of previous stiches in previous rows? I'm determined to make these!
    Thank you so much(: Your blog is awesome!

    1. Hi Ashley!
      Place a stitch marker (or safety pin) in the first stitch of every round. Then when you get to the end of the round, you'll know when to end.
      Hope this helps!

  5. Hi,
    super cute pattern!!
    I am new to crochet, I taught myself and learned pretty quickly.
    I finished the bottom of the shoe no problem, but my question is why fasten off to make the top of the shoe? I am not entirely sure how to attach the yarn back into the bottom.

    Thanks so much in advance, after I finish these I will be starting on your cute frog bootie pattern :)

  17. On Round 4 for top of shoe it says crochet 1 single crochet decrease. Crochet 1 single crochet in the next stitch does this mean that you do them both in the same stitch or over two stitches so one decrease in one stitch and the single crochet in the next stitch.
