I am so excited to share this with you!
A few months ago, I received an email from Brianna Thomas asking me if I would be interested in designing a pattern with her; exclusively for Furls. I of course, jumped at the chance!
Bri emailed me her design idea – a beautifully hand-drawn image of a pair of strawberry baby booties.
Bri’s vision for these booties was so unique – she wanted one to showcase the strawberry flower bloom and the second to be the sweet strawberry. She wanted the baby booties to have a wrap-around white satin ribbon tie to hold them in place when worn.
It was my job to create the crochet pattern to match Bri’s vision of the baby booties as closely as possible.
I always love a challenge and this was no exception!
I created the crochet pattern using a Bloodwood (4.5 mm) Alpha Series Crochet Hook from Furls and multiple colours of Berroco Weekend Yarn (Reddy, Daisy, Lemon, Forest). The yarn is spectacular to crochet with (so soft and smooth!) and the Berroco Colours are so vibrant and bright.
It was an absolute pleasure to crochet with the Berroco Yarn and Furls Bloodwood Crochet Hook.
The booties are worked in continuous rounds and I provided a number of tutorial photos for the bits you might need a visual to understand – like where to attach the ribbon to the slipper base.
The Sweet as Strawberry Baby Booties Pattern is available in one size: 6-12 month and you can get your free pdf copy of this pattern from Furls here: Free Furls Patterns
I am very pleased with how the booties turned out and I love seeing the adorable model wearing them – she looks so happy in her photo shoot photos!
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the pattern after you download it from Furls. I would be happy to help!
