Baby Oh Baby Watermelon Shoes!

A free crochet pattern for lovely watermelon shoes!!! I absolutely love seeing little ones in watermelon outfits in the summer time! I have made my share of watermelon themed items over the years. I will show you a few at the end of this post. Some were for me as well. If I thought I could get away with it, I would make myself a watermelon themed outfit, and who knows I may do that some day!

Anyhoo...here is a free pattern for watermelon baby shoes. They are sized 0-3 month and with a change of a hook, you get a pair that is sized 3-6 month. I have shown you a couple of ways to embellish them, but let your mind soar, and go crazy with embellishments!! Get inspired!!
