Best Booties ***Free Pattern***

And suddenly its March?! February is insanely busy at my house. Both of my girls have their birthday in Feb. and the youngest just celebrated her very first birthday, so exciting! I had a baby shower to attend at the beginning of March so I made these little booties. I had made a similar pair for my daughter as a baby but I didn't have a blog then, so I'm 'releasing' the pattern now. I also made a Packer's football, because I know that's the new daddy's fave team. I personally don't watch football, I'm more of a hockey girl! Here's the pattern for the football. I modified it as usual to suit my liking. For the stripes on the ends I used surface ch stitches. For the laces on top I crocheted a separate piece and then attached it with a criss-cross pattern. I couldn't get a decent pic of that to show you, sorry!

And for the packer's logo I crocheted a small circle and used surface ch stitches to form the G, then attached it. I was pretty pleased with how it came out.
