Isn’t there something so fun and wonderful about baby things? Maybe it’s because they are cute little miniatures. Or maybe it’s because we are reminded of our own babies (our babies who aren’t babies anymore!) Either way, it’s so much fun to make baby accessories. While we’ve made crochet sandals for adults, these Crochet Baby Loafers are great if you have a baby shower coming up (or a due date).
Crochet Baby Loafers Pattern
These cute little shoes are made with two parts, the body and the tongue. This is what gives these baby booties their cute little loafer style. I also designed them with two colors because I personally love mixing and matching colors. Take creative license with yours!

Construction of the crochet baby loafers:
Be sure to weave in all the ends on the shoe body and the beginning tail on the tongue before attaching it. Visually line up the tongue on the shoe, covering the toe (the wider end). You may use pins to keep it in place. Using the long tail, thread your darning needle onto the long tail. Sew a simple running stitch all around the toe and tongue, attaching them together. Take care at the beginning and end, anchoring the corners very well. For a cleaner look, sew through the back loops of the tongue and back loops on the shoe (the 2 inside loops).
Weave in your ends.
