This is a crochet pattern for my easy beginner-friendly baby booties – Little daisy. Find out what inspired me to design this pattern, what yarn did I choose, and learn all the tricks on how to create perfect baby shoes.
Three weeks, three videos, and three blog posts in a row. I am so happy I am finally getting back on track with filming, editing, and of course crocheting, which is my favorite thing to do.
Last week I was showing you what did I purchase in my recent yarn haul, two weeks ago I was sharing with you a pattern for crochet baby Granny Square romper and this week we will create a pair of cute baby booties for little girls.
I say for girls because we are going to use two tiny daisy flowers, one for each shoe to decorate our projects and make the even more cute.
But if you like the pattern and you would like to make it in a project for little boys, I recommend switching the daisies for pain round buttons that we are going to use for our project anyways, our find the buttons in a shape of a car or an animal.
Like always, please make sure you attach the pieces together with great care. They should not fall off the main part easily because they may pose a choking hazard. If you sell the finished items, attach a little note letting the person know they should be careful.

Attach one flower on the front outer side of each shoe. You can attach the flower to the shoe in two ways. You can use a hot glue gun and glue the flower on the shoe or you can take a small amount of yarn and a yarn needle and sew the flower on the shoe. Either way, make sure you nicely secure the flower on the shoe to prevent any accidents. 🙂

I am trying to figure out why every type of baby bootie I make turns out too big!! I use the correct hook and have always been told I crochet tightly… so frustrated…
I am so sorry to hear that. If your final item is too big, just use a smaller crochet hook. 🙂
I have the exact same problem even when I use a smaller hook
Thank you so much for the sincere sharing and guidance…. It turn out beautifully…. Regards and god bless ?
These are so cute. Instructions are very very easy to understand without any confusion. Thanks for sharing ?
I’m in love with this pattern. Thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
Thank you for sharing! You have given me so much confidence when making the booties. When I read your pattern notes a light came on for me. Everything has been so much easier to understand.
Thank you ssssoooo much for sharing your talents!
What a beautiful pattern! I am making these for my 22nd granddaughter! Please tell me how to get to the PDF for this pattern? For some reason I cannot find the link. THANK YOU AGAIN!!
Hi Lisa! There is no PDF pattern for these baby booties at the moment, I am so sorry.
How do I get a written copy of the baby booties pattern? I tried to print this pattern but it won’t print out! I want to make the booties before this coming weekend for my niece’s shower. Thanks for sharing these cute baby girl booties!
Hi Lola! The text and photos are copy protected. I had to do that because too many people were copying the patterns and were trying to post them on their websites. You can print the pattern directly from your browser. 🙂
Could you use 4ply 100% cotton for these or do you think they’ll be too small? Thank you!
Hi! I think 4ply would be a little bit too thin for this project. 🙂
Good day, I’d like to copy and paste this pattern into a Word document so that I can print it, but am unable to do so. Please help. Love your work very much. Thanks for sharing. x
Hi Florence! The text and photos are copy protected. I had to do that because too many people were copying the patterns and were trying to post them on their websites. But you can still print the pattern directly from your browser. 🙂 Happy crocheting!
I’m wondering why the seam I made always goes diagonally to the right, how to fix it and make it straight… Thank you…
Try turning rounds. 🙂
Could you explain what hdc2tog means? I understand hdc is half double crochet, but tog does not appear in the Stitches and Abbreviations.
Hi Cindi! HDC2tog means you have to join two hdc sts into one st. It’s a decrease in the pattern. 🙂
Hi I have made the sandals with the tassel I am myself so surprised I accomplished thanks for your patterns and video tutorials. I enjoy every one. Thanks from South Africa.
Hi just a quick note to thank you very much for your cute crochet baby shoe pattern. Easy to follow pattern and video tutorial.
I really enjoyed making them thank you again. xx
Thank you so much, Sandra! 😊
I’m new to your site and I love your patterns and wonderful tutorials! I would love to make the baby girl booties with a flower in size 6-12 months but I’m having trouble finding that pattern on Etsy . I’m sure I must be overlooking it!
Hi Tricia! This pattern is one of a few patterns I wrote that doesn’t have written instructions for a bigger size. I will do my best to publish it in more sizes in the near future. I am putting it to my to-do list. Happy crocheting! 🙂
Hi could you give the pattern for 6-12 months?
silly question I”m sure, but how do you print to your browser? I can’t seem to figure this out, like to make for my first grandbaby. Thanks for sharing!!!!
