Baby Daisy Slippers

So inbetween crocheting dolls legs, I whipped up this little project for a friend who has just had a new baby girl. The plan was that I would bring it round to her this afternoon with a meal, but a bout of gastro changed those plans.. Im feeling better now and the booties are finished, I will have to organise a visit for next week to deliver!

So the inspiration comes once again from Holland Designs by Lisa van Klaveren. She designed a cute pair of kimono slippers with the flower and stem idea.
The actual bootie pattern is once again adapted from a pattern I found online here
I was getting way too fussy with flower patterns, I could not find one that was just quite right enough, so I made up my own little design. And the leaves were a last minute added extra, pattern found on this gorgeous blog.
(PS. That blog is well worth the look at! I really love the idea of dressing the naked branch)

And here's the final result:

They fit my (almost) 6 month old daughter, with a little toe room to spare. But I know she has got extra tiny feet. So for a gauge I would say they fit approx 3- 6 months. Hopefully this new little baby girl gets some wear out of them before Summer is over.

Thats all for now, back to crocheting dolls legs.....
