  9. Such a cute pattern. You are such a great teacher. I viewed your video on YouTube for Tunisian and fell in love with it. Tunisian jester hats are one of my featured items I now sell in my Etsy shop.

  10. love this pattern and your instructional videos are "the best". But, I'm wanting to make these high tops as a gift for a newborn, is there a newborn variation? Or what adjustments would be needed to make them smaller?
    Also, I found a newborn bootie pattern that I love but I cannot understand the directions..would you consider a video on Howto make these if I send you the pattern? terrie.rich3568@insightbb.com

  11. Hi Terasa

    I have a small doubt like is it necessary to do any difference while crocheting for the right or left leg..

    Thanks....

    ReplyDelete
  12. It is not necessary to do left and right booties, because babies' won't wear these like shoes, they will act more like socks. But you will want to pick a left and right for each one so that the star emblems will be on the outside of each bootie respectively.

  13. Jessy,
    If you would have visited the video, the lefty version is for left handed people.

  14. Theresa, I've had such a hard time out there finding cute AND easy bootie patterns, and nothing for boys. I have found all three in your tute! Thank you so much you should see the horrors I've crocheted before this. First time out, voila! I feel confident about crocheting now. *big hug* Thank you thank you thank you!

  17. Wonderful booties. It is a great idea to make them look like shoes. Thanks for sharing.

  18. So, in order to make these booties for say 6-12 months I would just adjust the size of the hook and yarn?

    ReplyDelete
  19. You can use a lager crochet hook. I also have a larger pattern posted as well.

  23. I can't see size of yarn mentioned anywhere. Can you let us know what weight you used.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Teresa, I spend lots of days working on your great projects and I have a favor to ask. I absolutely love the Blue Baby Layette that Esperosa has on YouTube, and I have the instructions,however, the english translation doesn't make sense with me, when they call a Post a Twig. Would you consider making the tutorial for the entire set, the booties, jacket, blanket, cute round hat, and bib, oh even please a baby bottle holder. please consider it, I love the bars and trimming effect is so darling. I speak spanish and read but, not good at this one. Thank you \

  25. About how many months would this bootie fit ?? like 0-3 , 3-6, 6-12 ... my daughter is currently 6 months and i want to make her a pair that will fit her little footsie ...

    ReplyDelete

    1. A size G hook will fit a foot 4 inches across. Measure her foot. If it is longer, you can use a larger hook to make a larger bootie.
