So in getting to the bootie portion of the set my friend asked me about, I knew right where to turn for the main part of the bootie...the pattern for the crocheted sneaker booties! (I love that pattern! It is so cute!!!) I stopped after doing the 5th row of the body of the slipper, and then added on one row of sc all the way around to make it a smidgen taller and more narrow.
(I'm thinking maybe I should have used a smaller hook for a newborn size...these things'll last a while, unless the kid's got monster feet! LOL) From there I improvised my own little flap that will button on to hold the bootie on those itty-bitty feet. And now all I have to do is go find more buttons! (Here I come, craft store!) Here are the button flap instructions:
ch8, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 5 chs; 2sc in last ch, 2 sc in other side, working around the end of the chain to work in the round. sc in next 5 ch, 3sc in last ch, sl st to join.
round 2: ch1, 2 sc in first st, sc in next 5 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st, sc in next 5 sts, 2sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, sl st to join
round 3: ch 1, single crochet in same stitch and in each of the next 6 stitches after, 2sc in next st, ch 4, sk next 2 stitches and 2sc in following st, sc in next 7 sts, 2 sc in next st, ch4, sk 2sts, 2 sc in next st, sl st to join, finish off, weave in ends.
