Crochet Pattern: Doll Booties

A Guest Post by Tara Cousins.

I’ve been crocheting a long time, but just recently started making crochet doll clothes for 18″ dolls. Since my little girl just turned 3, she’s finally interested in playing with my old American Girl doll and dressing her up, which prompted me to design my own patterns. The first item I started playing around with making is the doll’s shoes. In fact, they are pretty easy to make and to customize (with a strap, or make into boots). You can also use this basic idea to make baby shoes!

    Thankyou so much for this pattern. I’ve been looking for a shoe or boot pattern for the dolls that I am crocheting. It is a very good one and easy.

    Thank you so much for this pattern–I had to adapt it a little by using finer yarn and a smaller hook, but the pattern was perfect for my little girl’s Rapunzel doll. They’re darling!
