Watermelon is one fruit that I really love to eat because of its interesting colours. In fact, it was the motivation for designing this cross strap baby girl booties. This different colours add alot more beauty to this bootie. However, you can decide to make this bootie in just one colour.
With this pattern, you can make cute baby girl booties just working in rows and it’s more convenient and faster than working in the round and you can be sure that your booties will come out the same size. Heck Yeah! You won’t have to make a third bootie just to have two match up! This crochet baby booties pattern will be a great for baby shower gifts and newborn gifts.
