” Marshmallow ” velvet baby boots

Sharing is caring!

             “Marshmallow ” velvet baby boots will open a new world of crochet slippers and booties for you. These boots are soft and squishy and perfect for your child/friend or loved one.

In this design we used leather-EVA- felt 3 layered boots sole, which probably is new to you but very well known in Europe countries. You can make each design onto the sole without need to crochet one. They are more durable and water resistant. You can find the soles in our Etsy shop here. We prepared a PDF pattern with lots of photos which will help you following the pattern. The sizes available in the boots PDF pattern are the same. In future days we will include the bigger sizes too.Find the PDF pattern here.

I can say that if you give a try to these soles you will never need to crochet one. After a long search for a name of the pattern my baby girl suggested that it could be ” Marshmallow ” so we did it. We gave the name Marshmallow to these boots- Don’t they look like a marshmallows ?

The pattern is really easy to follow and there are extended instructions how to turn the slippers into boots and how to turn them in bunny slippers or bunny boots which your kids will definitely love. Happy crochet to all. You can watch the youtube video tutorial for the pattern as well. Enjoy.

Marshmallow velvet boots pattern:

Materials needed for the boots:

  • 2mm crochet hook
  • 3,5mm crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle, pair of scissors,
  • 1 ball velvet yarn – I used Himalaya dolphin baby 100gr – 120 mt/131 yards . 100% polyester
  • 20gr or 20metre of cotton mercerized yarn – I used Schachenmayr Catania solid.You will need durable, but thin yarn so it will be easily pull through the holes of sole.
  • Fur/gem stone accessory if you wish. You can find it in our Etsy shop here.
  • Leather boots / slipper sole. You can find them in our Etsy shop here.

If you don’t like to use leather sole you can crochet one. You just need to have the exact stitches as we have in our 1st round worked with velvet yarn.

  1. Hi TJ and NJ! These slippers are so cute! Do you have a pattern for crocheting the sole? I didn’t understand what you meant when saying “If you don’t like to use leather sole you can crochet one. You just need to have the exact stitches as we have in our 1st round worked with velvet yarn.” Thank you!

    1. Hello Monica, we used to have one but unfortunately not anymore. Maybe we can update the pattern and add the crochet ones!
