Mary-Jane Crochet Baby Shoe Kit

Make these sweet little bar shoes with wooden buttons in easy crochet.  Traditionally known as a "Mary-Jane" style this little baby shoe is quick to crochet in our lovely soft and silky yarn.

The strap has three buttonholes along its length to give a perfect fit and room to grow. 

The kit contains;

1 pair of felt soles

1 22g ball of chunky yarn

1 pair of wooden buttons


- all in an Organza bag.

The yarn we have chosen for these little shoes is an unusual mix of soft wool over a core yarn with a lovely sheen which shines through - the pictures show it better than the words! 

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 a 4.5mm hook for the rest of the shoe. These are not included in the kit. 

The finished shoes can be gently washed as wool. 

This shoe is not intended for walking babies as the plain felt will slip on polished surfaces. 

Soft Sparkle Yarn 24% wool, 53% nylon, 23% acrylic

Malabrigo Worsted Yarn 100% non-mulesed Merino wool

Felt soles minimum 90% wool.

Very cute

While I find the little shoes very cute and easy and quick to make, I think they are over priced for the quality of yarn supplied. I found the notches hard to locate and they could do with more room for toes. I know I can adjust that myself and use my own will but I will buy more soles from you. I understand if you don't want to publish this.

These little shoes are cute aren't they? The sparkle yarn is a top quality yarn with 50% wool for the soft 'fuzz' and a core of shiny man-made fibre for the centre. Most if not all our other yarns are pure wool. The notches can be a little harder to see in some colour but are quite easy to feel.
We offer a money-back guarantee on all orders. We welcome all feedback and are happy to publish your review.
