Chubby Baby Flip-Flop Sandals Pattern

Chubby Baby Flip-Flop Sandals Pattern

by Elizabeth Mareno

For an ad-free version, you can purchase this pattern on ETSY or my website for $2.00
Dress your baby up in the cutest little flip-flop sandal to ever adorn chubby feet! They have a double-thick bottom so they are nice and sturdy, as well as a button closure to help keep them on baby’s feet.
You can use any worsted weight cotton you have on hand. Samples were made up using soft garment cotton, basic kitchen cotton, and a cotton/hemp blend. All types worked up beautifully! This pattern is great for individual creativity. Use crazy color combos, or dress them up with buttons, beads, or appliques!
