Sailor Baby Booties - Free Crochet Pattern


One of my fondest memories as a child was when I would pull out a large suitcase from underneath my bed. Inside this suitcase was a mountain of the most amazing dress-ups (mainly handmade), which constantly fed my ever evolving imagination. There was princess dresses, a doctor's coat, scrubs and stethoscope, cowboy hats and of course a sailors outfit among many others.

Till this day I still enjoy dressing up for parties, and especially crocheting projects with a quirky theme, such as these tiny sailor booties!

If after crocheting these tiny shoes you're excited to crochet even more baby accessories, I'd suggest trying your hand at my Princess Charlotte baby booties or even my teddy bear baby booties pattern!

  2. I love this, Olivia! I wasn't looking for a nautical theme for my current baby shower gift list, but I'm thinking a few very specific and simple modifications could easily make your pattern fit this one's theme...I will definitely let you know and link back to your pattern if I can make it work. And if not this time, I've bookmarked this pattern for the next round of baby showers. Booties are always welcome. :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!
