Now it's become my mission to make shoes that go on as easy as socks , are just as comfy, and stretchable too.
I started out making cute little summertime sandals. They're really more for decoration and not so practical for keeping warm. Fair warning though, these were my first attempts at sandals. I've come a long way and plan to create patterns and revise these to look much more appealing

My Gramma used to make these cute little converse look alike baby shoes, and I've tried so many times through the years to make them, but didnt have much luck. Not much luck that is, until I came across this free pattern on Ravelry by LoopySueDesigns I beleive the pattern is marked public, but if not, you may need to join Ravelry to access. Ravelry is free and it's a wonderland of information, ideas and resources for knitting and crocheting. I didnt follow the actual pattern , although it's easy to understand with diagrams and pictures. I just used it as a guide because I could never figure out how to make the tongue and toe part of the shoe. Thanks to this pattern, I have had an easy time making the sneakers. Before long I will have them in all sizes and colors. I do sell them on my Etsy store, and keep the price really low, because there's nothing worse than having to pay a small fortune for something that your baby will grow out of.
Here's some of the different ways the shoes can look.
