Help your baby make a splash at the beach or pool with their very own pair of Starfish Barefoot Sandals! These cute accents are much cooler in summer time for baby's little feet, but still punch up the cute factor. Crochet a pair in any color to match all of baby's summer outfits or beach ware. This pattern comes together fast and can easily be crocheted in one sitting. Baby barefoot sandals would also make a clever and creative baby shower gift as well. Lengthen the straps and toe loop to create barefoot sandals for kids or adult size feet.
