Fuzzy Crochet Baby Booties / by Melody

This is unusual for me - normally I don't make baby things unless someone I know is having a baby. But this yarn was begging to be made into a pair of fluffy baby slippers, so I came up with a simple pattern and these adorable booties were born! 
These booties are available for $12 in my Etsy shop - the perfect baby shower gift for the winter mom! They're available in a variety of sizes, too, and will work for both boys and girls. 

And psst....if you like to crochet, the pattern is below!
