I really hope you enjoy this crochet baby booties pattern. I named this pattern, "Ballerina Baby Booties" because the little shoes remind me of ballet slippers. This pattern is one of my favorite designs and I love the way they look on babies feet. I also feel that the bow really adds a lot of character and style.
