Free Pattern: Baby Barefoot Sandals

Hiya! So, I spent this morning lounging in the sun working on a new idea. Barefoot. Sandals.

Now, I can't take credit for the concept. I've seen them around for a while, and when I searched on Etsy and Google, there were others there already. But... my nieces feet needed jewelry and it was a fun break. I came up with about six different designs this afternoon (poor Sissy doesn't have a matching pair, yet...), but I thought I'd share the most basic one with you!

Mind you this is sized for a toddlers foot (she wears a size six, but they also worked for my son who wears an 8). My niece (20 months) wore them for a couple of hours. My son ripped them off immediately. Technically, he told me to rip them off immediately. But, he also doesn't like the little piggy game, so... yeah, I didn't figure he'd want something hooked around his toe.
