Everyone loves handmade gifts for baby, but what if it’s summertime and you’re not sure if your gift of a crocheted baby blanket would get much use? Crochet some little baby sandals! These five free crochet patterns might not be safe for an older baby who is already walking, but the sandals would sure be cute on little feet that haven’t mastered mobility from the upright position just yet.

Bow Front Crochet Baby Sandals

These darling baby sandals are shown with a tan sole that looks almost like jute, making them resemble real sandals. The front strap of the sandal is worked up to look like a bow, and they’d be adorable as an accessory to that cute little sundress pattern that you’ve been wanting to try.

Baby Button Gladiator Sandals

Bethany gives us a simple pattern for a gladiator-style baby sandal (pictured above) that’s quick to work up. Once you have the soles completed, it only requires the chain stitch for the top, and slip stitch to attach to the sole. You could make these baby sandals in a jiffy - a pair to match every summer outfit!

Baby Rainbow Sandals

If you want a baby shoe with a little more substance than a true sandal, but still more for summer than a bootie might be, try these Baby Rainbow Sandals. Crocheted in all one piece, they’re similar to a Mary Jane, and just as cute!

Crochet Geek’s Baby Sandals

These baby sandals are a little more plain that those listed above, so would be suitable for a baby boy that doesn’t need all the fuss and frills. They’re still appropriate for a baby girl, though, if you crochet them in pretty colors to match her flowery spring and summer outfits.

Simple Crocheted Baby Sandals

Another pattern that works for either boy or girl, these crocheted baby sandals are free of frills also, but just as cute. Work up several in different colors that would be appropriate for either gender, and keep on hand in your stash for that unexpected gift for the baby shower that you forgot about.
