Baby Slippers with Ankle Strap

I finally finished these this morning.
One of my darling Young Women invited me to her Aunts baby shower, which I missed because of a scheduling conflict. 

The pattern calls for a felted sweater and I did not have one.  
So, I fell back on some polar fleece that I had in my fabric stash. 

I used cotton baby yarn called "Baby Denim."
I found I had to pierce the fleece with a seam ripper and then use a pair of pliers to pull the yarn through.  (I did not crochet the first time around each piece.  I used a yarn needle and blanket stitch.  Then I did the crochet edge.)
What a darling pair of baby booties.

I do not love putting buttons on anything that a small person with razor sharp teeth will wear.
So, they will come with the warning to watch the buttons and not use them if they should become loose.

This pattern is available on Etsy.
And there is a side strap bootie that has quite a few differences-
Amy Butlers Little Stitches For Ones
It is a turned pattern and it looks much simpler to work up without the crocheting.
