Can you remember that I told you why I learned to crochet? Yes, it was because my baby god-daughter Nina was born and she most definitely needed the cutest baby flip-flops ever for her first summer. And her mother made sure I made them for her precious little girl. Unfortunately I didn’t know how to crochet. But I love myself a good challenge every once in a while and got to work.
Basically I learned crocheting by watching YouTube videos and I made a video collection for you of the ones that helped me a lot!
As I stumbled over photos taken three years ago with my god-daughter sporting her fabulous baby flip-flops, I decided to share the pattern for them. I am sure other cute little angels are in desperate need for the worlds cutest baby flip-flops, too!!!
I searched my quadrillion pins on Pinterest for the original pattern but had a hard time finding a link to the original free pattern by Annoo’s Crochet World that would actually work #WhatABummer. But after a long time and a little finesse I succeeded!!! So if you want a detailed photo description of the pattern, go visit this artistic ladies website.
