Our easy crochet Billie boots are perfect for little boys and girls. These little baby bootees are quick to crochet in our lovely soft and silky yarn.
The kit contains;
1 pair of felt soles
1 ball of chunky slipper yarn or Malabrigo Mecha Yarn
Small ball of second colour yarn to trim the cuffs where shown.
- all in an Organza bag.
The first yarn we have chosen for our little Billie boots is an unusual mix of soft wool over a silky core yarn with a lovely sheen which shines through - the pictures show it better than the words!
The other yarn is Malabrigo Mecha, shown in the blue colour.
The soles are made from our thick felt with holes ready punched.
We used a small crochet hook (1.5mm to 3mm) to work the foundation row into the sole and or 4mm hook for the rest of the shoe. These are not included in the kit.
The finished shoes can be gently washed as wool.
These little boots are not intended for walking babies as the plain felt could slip on polished surfaces. Latex or other slip-stop could be used to help stop this. We also sell felt soles with latex and suede soles which could easily be added to offer a little more grip.
