To make these giraffe baby booties I used this free pattern from Croby Patterns. If you’re looking for baby shoe patterns or new to crocheting, she makes a bunch of easy to follow patterns and video tutorials. Her site is definitely worth checking out!
I used my own free pattern to make the giraffe’s face. You can find the pattern here. Just sew the applique onto the front of the shoe with a tapestry needle.
To create the tail, I attached my yarn to the back of each bootie and chained 6, turned, then made 5 single crochets in the chain and slip stitched into the next stitch. I added a little bit of fuzzy ‘fringe’ to the tail by knotting some brown yarn into the end of the stitch.
I cut tiny circles from felt and sewed them onto the exterior of the shoe to create the look of polka dots!
You can save this collage to one of your crochet Pinterest boards!
