When I first started crocheting, I wanted to make a pretty set to give as a handmade present to the parents of a newborn baby. 

A mum to be looking for a more intricate pair of baby booties, to match one of my Basic Easy Crochet baby hat patterns, although I had a basic baby booties crochet pattern, mum was wanting a more shoe type with strap and rosette flower at the front.

So I set out to create cute crocheted baby shoes for a little girl.

 These are perfect for preemie / newborn + and would make an ideal baby shower gift, they also work up very fast so great for a stash busting project or last minute or surprise baby gift.

Well after a little searching, for a more delicate baby shoe to crochet. I just couldn't find what I or the mum were imagining so I sat down with my crochet hook and some yarn, and went to work, and worked out a written pattern for crocheted baby booties shoes.

The end result was these gorgeous little crocheted Mary Jayne shoes, which I added a little flower to and paired with a little crocheted baby hat and in no time I had created a beautiful gift idea for a new baby,

I made both booties and hat  with the same ball of wool. (100g) and completed within the same night.  

The booties can be crocheted in many different colors of your choice as they are so simple to make.

Straps! I'm NOT goanna lie I could not get the STRAPS completely identical working in the round and was a bit of a nightmare. 

So If You would rather just crochet a strap and sew DIRECTLY onto the Shoes at equal distance on both sides and ADD a Button 

Then simply 
Chain 15, Working Back into the chain, slip stitch into the 5th chain from the hook (Buttonhole made)
Chain 15, single crochet into the 2nd ch from hook and sc in the next 10 sts, fasten OFF. Sew to appropriate side of shoe. 

This is how I originally Made the Straps in case anyone is interested however If you come up with a better way please let me know! 

FIRST bootie
 fold the booties in half to Locate center of toe, 
count 5 stitches BACK towards the heel and join wool.
Chain 15 working (5 chain counts a loop for button)
Sc into 5th chain from hook, sc back to where you joined yarn, slip st into same space as joining at side of shoe, and finish off.

Second Bootie Strap will be made into the OPPOSITE side of the FIRST bootie 
fold the booties in half to Locate center of toe, ENSURE you count back over The opposite SIDE to what the FIRST bootie was. 

Ch 5, slip to join to the FIRST chain you made! (BUTTONHOL 
Chain 10. slip to join to /side of /shoe, WORK BACK along the chain in single crochet to the Buttonhole and fasten off  

By counting Forwards from center 5 stitches

You can, if you wish, put a design on top of the baby booties such as a crochet flower. And add on your buttons for the straps.
