Tie Up Crochet Baby Booties Pattern

Tie Up Crochet Baby BootiesThis is my Tie Up Crochet Baby Booties Pattern and the tie can be secured over the front of the babie’s foot so to ensure that those booties are going to stay on… we hope! This pattern is a standard one I use to make booties for gifts and charity donations.

Amazon Review:

Well, this was the first pattern book I’ve ever purchased and I made plenty of cute little booties for my little girl and one pair for a friend.

I found the instructions easy to follow, and if there was a stitch I didn’t know there is a chart in the back which is very handy.

It would have been nice if it had color pages but at least you have a color picture on the front and back covers.

    These little booties are so gorgeous! And as a beginner, the video tutorial was wonderfully helpful. Thank you Paula!

    • Paula says:

      Thank you very much, Crystal. I’m happy to hear that you find the video tutorial helpful, it sure is easier to see someone make them than to read patterns at first when you are a beginner. 🙂

      • MANISHA ARYA says:

        Dear Paula,

        First i will like to thank u becous of u i learnt to make baby booties.i never used crochet but today after seeing your baby booties tutorial i learn to hold the crochet.thank u Paula thank u very much.u are lovely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Paula says:

          Hello Manisha, I’m really glad I’ve been able to teach you how to make baby booties. Thank you for your lovely comment!!! 🙂

  2. janice says:

    Thanks so much. It was fun putting these little booties together, and they both turned out the same! I have tried to make booties before, and one sometimes is slightly bigger or smaller than the other. Drives me mad! lol I am a beginner, and your video was very easy to understand.
    Thanks again

    • Paula says:

      That’s great that you can now get your booties to be the same size, Janice. I’m glad the video tutorials help. 🙂

  3. Erin C. says:

    I’ve looked all over for cute, simple baby booties and these are the best! They could be dressed up with white yarn and ribbon for a baby blessing or done in a cozier yarn with the buttons you suggested for everyday wear. I love the ties that are great for either boys or girls (rather than the tall cuff that you see on so many others) and with your wonderful tutorial video, they really are easy to make! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    • Paula says:

      Thank you so much, Erin. I’m so happy you really like this pattern and as you said, these booties can be made in all different ways. A really great all-rounder bootie! 🙂

  4. Nausheen says:

    thank you so much for taking the time to do this tutorial. I have only been crocheting for three days and I’ve made a newborn pair of these booties with a blue sole and white top and a pink one for my 1.5yr old daughter. she wears a sole size 12cm and I was able to make her size with a 6mm hook and chunky smooth yaarn. your work is amazing and has given me the confidence to crochet. I’d like to know do you have any baby hats to go with this? I’d like to make one for my daughter and also please do more of thsoe baby booties that go high up or with a cuff I’m desperately looking to make those but cant find a video tutorial nearly as clear as yours. Thank you so much once again.

    • Paula says:

      It’s my pleasure, Nausheen. That’s amazing that you’ve made these booties and you’ve just started to crochet 3 days ago! Good on you! If you have a look in the baby category you might be able to match a hat with the booties. I will be designing more high top booties in the future so keep your eye out for them. 🙂

  5. veronica says:

    They are so perfect. I love them great job. They look beautiful made my first pair very easy to follow

  6. theresa says:

    Hi. Lovely design. Can i just ask…on the pic it shows the ties as having the ends sealed somehow…how do you do this as i my yarn keeps unravelling on the ends.

    • Paula says:

      Hello Theresa, The yarn I used didn’t fray and that’s why they look good.

  7. Pembe Hussein says:

    Hi Paula, absolutely adore this pattern and it will definitely be added to my repertoire. I am currently making another bootie pattern of yours and ive fallen in love with its ease of use…it is now my go to pattern if i need booties made in a hurry… keep up the fantastic work 🌻
