Hopefully I have!
I am sharing my first pattern of the site and I think they turned out adorable!
August is half way over, but I couldn't help creating a pair of Barefoot Sandals with Hearts!
I hope you enjoy creating your own pair as much as I enjoyed creating this simple beginner's crochet pattern. If you need any help with the pattern please send me an email via the Contact page and I'll do my best to get back to you promptly.

Note: For extra length on the ankle straps increase the number of chains. For example, if you want the straps to wrap around ankle twice ch 104 to begin pattern and ch 100 to end pattern. This pattern is very adaptable. You can add hearts for different feet sizes or subtract hearts for kids' sizes.
