 Baby Booties by Tamaira

On a Monday, my least favorite day of the week by the way, I opened my Facebook page to find a picture of the most adorable baby booties ever. I could just picture the chubby little feet that would slip into this comfy cocoon. They so made me smile.  Well, I asked Tamaira DeVries-Liverance if I could share her little beauties with you guys because stuff that makes people smile should be shared. Not only did she let me share the picture, she let me share how she made her “Princess Slippers for the Ball”.

THANK YOU Tamaira !

The pattern is easy to follow and if you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will find a video tutorial I made about 100 years ago but it still does the job.

Here is the Comment Below the Picture

I loomed these adorable slippers last night for the little girl I nanny.
I have my own pair (less adorable lol) and she asked if I could make her some “princess slippers to wear to the ball”…how could I refuse?!

 

Supplies

.

Loom: For these little ones I used a 16-peg round loom (24-peg for adults).


Yarn:
I used 3 strands of worsted weight (pictured below).

Three Strands for Tamaira Baby booties

The pink, and variegated are Red Heart Super Saver, the purple was extra from a previous project (I don’t recall the brand).

 

Pattern: by Tamaira DeVries-Liverance

.

I did these without a pattern. I watched a YouTube tutorial for adult slippers and adapted it.
These are made using the E-wrap stitch.

1. Measure the foot they are being made for (these are 6 inches.)
2 Wrap your yarn around the outside of the loom once, and leave this for stitching at the end.
3. Start by making a flat panel (wrap around the loom, when you reach the last peg wrap backwards) approx. half the length needed (in this case 3 inches.)
4. Once you reach the half way point switch to wrapping all the way around (like you would for a hat.)
5. Finish the length needed, then finish like a hat (remove from loom, flip inside out, pull tight, tie off & weave in the ends.)
Fold the flat end in half to form the back of the slipper.
Stitch closed (on the inside of the slipper) with yarn measured at the beginning. Weave in ends.

And you’re done!
You can add a cute button if you would like (I love the ones I used on these!)

 

Video:

.

Below is a video I made a LONG time ago when I first started one of  my YouTube Channels. Excuse that it’s not that great.. but it does show you how to make the booties. Make sure to watch the whole video before you start the project.
I hope to do a remake sometime soon. But for now …

    Hi, it’s me again. I went to the website CinDwood crafts (thanks for the link) but the smallest they have is 21 peg. I cannot find the 16 peg.

    • Denise Canela March 14, 2015 at 11:09 am

      Hi Ann, Try the link below. It that doesn’t help here is another way to get to the loom.. when you go to the website.. in the search box put the words Baby Slipper. You will see a choice of gauge sizes – the 16 peg is 5/8 and cost is $9.00. CinDLooms are a bit more expensive – But well worth the cost.

      Here is a link you can try: Click HERE

        Hi, it’s me again. I ordered my 16 peg loom; I realized I had to find it under the size (5/8). The price is worth it to me if I can make some booties for my little granddaughter. Thank you for all your replies and for your patience!

        • Denise Canela March 14, 2015 at 11:43 am

          No problem AnnTheresa ! Glad I could help.
          Hugs,
          denise

    HI! Thanks for responding! However, I went to Google and put in CinDLoom and found CinDwood crafts but could not find a 16 peg round loom. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Thank you for sharing i love the coin idea

  5. AnnTheresa March 12, 2015 at 9:04 am

    Where do you find a 16 peg round loom? I only have 12 and 24. I am very anxious to try this pattern. I have made very tiny booties but they are not easy. If the foot is bigger than six inches, how do I make the pattern bigger? Thank you so much!

    • Denise Canela March 12, 2015 at 9:01 pm

      CinDLoom has a 16 peg loom. These can be a bit more expensive then other looms but they are WELL worth it.

    • Tamaira DeVries-Liverance March 12, 2015 at 9:48 pm

      You just have to measure the foot, do half the length as a flat panel & half the length round/closed (like a hat.)
      These instructions would work on a 12peg loom for tinier feet or a 24peg loom for adults, and can be made to any length needed.
      I used the same steps to make slippers for myself on a 24peg loom, 9inches long (4.5inches flat & 4.5inches closed)

    Thank you for sharing! I am anxious to make these baby booties, very cute!

  7. Tamaira DeVries-Liverance March 11, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    Ahh this is so cool!
    Thanks for sharing my work Denise.

    Just a tip: you may want to add an extra 1/2 inch of length if your yarn is particularly stiff or your stitches are on the tight side.
