The pink satin booties.

Project Title and Brief Description

"Baby Girl Pink" Crocheted Dress, Bonnet, Booties & Bib 0-3 mos.

Why Was This Your Best Project From 2010?

This was one of my best because I crocheted this for a friend's newborn daughter, Aubrey, I enjoyed every stitch so much. It is a pattern that I have for a christening gown and I reworked it. The booties are made from 1/8" satin ribbon, which I have always wanted to try and they turned out great. I want to make some more booties and try new materials.

Lessons Learned

  • It is easy to crochet with satin ribbon and the ribbon is actually a better material for items such as booties because it holds the form much better.

To Helnzoo2:What a lovely set! Just gorgeous! Thank you for sharing the photos and information with us.

Also, thank you so much for the tip about satin ribbon; I really appreciate it. Next time I need to make a pair of booties, I will give that a try. I hope other crocheters will find this tip helpful as well!
