Novelty Footwear


There is something very satisfying in knitting little booties and shoes, they are a quick knit and  guaranteed to bring out a smile and an ahhhh response.

Woodland Booties

Owl booties

I thought this time I would go for owl booties, to make a change from the usual bunny and duck ones


They are knitted in DK  on 3mm needles They are knitted in woodland colours, a light fawn with orange piping and a green cuff. Sole of the booties are  4.5 inches (11 cm) with plenty of stretch so will fit baby 3-6 months and beyond.  The ribbed cuff gives a snug fit around the ankles so should hopefully stay on without the need to tie in place with ribbons.

To match the booties I knitted a little owl toy, which measures 7″, a good size to fit in the corner of a cot or play pen and of course for little hands to hold.

Little Puppy Slippers


These little slippers were knitted for twins, they were knitted in DK on 3.75mm needles and would fit babies 0-3 months.


The little puppy heads were a bit fiddly to assemble and attach to the booties, but well worth the effort.


After knitting  the  slippers for the boy/girl twins I was asked to knit some more for girl twins.

  1. Hi Carol, just wanted to say I love the little bootees. Like you I make alsorts of animals dollies etc. Ive wait for ages to get a little grandaughter, and now i have one still cant knit for her, as her mum likes all the named brand things, sort of takes the joy out of. I love to make things, spend a great deal of my time making, I get such pleasure from it, and so enjoy seeing what you,ve made. I dont sell mine, just give to charity, and friends who want them.Anyway thought Id pop by loved seeing things Vivienne.x ________________________________________

    • Thanks so much for stopping by Vivienne. I would love a grandchild but there isn’t even a glimmer of one on the horizon. lol. Such a shame when people want all the branded, trendy clothing and toys, to me babies mean hand knitted cardigans and homely little teddies but we may be one of a kind!!. So long as we enjoy making them someone will benefit.

      All the best
      Carol x
