Crochet Converse Booties

This pair of booties has been delivered to its adorable newborn owner, so they can finally be published in the blog!

The pattern is free on Ravelry and was made by Suzanne Resaul. They were a joy to crochet and I cant wait to bust out some more. It only took about an evening to make the shoes themselves. Sewing the stars on and ironing them on took a little bit more time, but I think it paid off. The circle is made of white felt and the stars are iron ons. The only change I would make in the future is get sports yarn for the white portions. I used regular worsted white and it was a little rough to work with compared to the sports yarn in blue.

These are meant more for style than actual walking, but the pattern provides a version for toddles that includes a rough surface on the bottom.
