Crochet pattern booties

At last, after a long, busy summer, I have a new pattern for you! I had made some sweet baby booties this spring, and they inspired me to create a different pattern using the same sole of the shoe. This pattern uses a 6-petaled flower as the top, and they turned out super-cute!

Finished size: Newborn to 6 months.

Assemble Booties:
Set flower on top of sole so that one petal is centered over the toe. Thread the same color yarn through a tapestry needle and folding the petals over the outer edge of the sole, sew 5 petals of the flower to the sole creating the top of the shoe. Be sure to sew it very securely, particularly the edges (*).
