Time to be environmentally friendly, politically correct, and perfect in every way. Ha!

Crochet Baby Booties with How To Videos

I think it's so fun to make baby booties!  Some parents use them for their babies to wear, and others just display the booties in their baby's room.  Either way, they are adorable! :)

Recently, we had a Beginner Crochet-Along in the Bernat Forum, where we made some baby booties together.  Here's the free pattern:
Finished Bootie #1

Since I was hosting the CAL, I made some very detailed How To Videos, showing how to work each step of the project.  Here are links to all of those videos.  I hope they help some of you learn to crochet some booties!
