    1. I do have an etsy account that I used to use, but nobody could really find me there. I have a facebook page and a website, where customers can order items.
      That reminds me… I need to add some links to my blog. 🙂 I’m glad you like them. One of my boys was a lion for Halloween two years ago (his twin was a lamb). They’ve both worn that hat many times since then and get compliments wherever we go! And, I’ve given several as gifts also. It would be so cute to have little lions in the crowd! What a great idea!

  1. had problems with instructions for round 3 of body, got to end of round after 3 repeats of [sc2tog, sc]. so, i counted stitches backward from round 4 dc2tog at centre front of shoe and filled in those stitches as per instructions. now i am ready for strap but i am a little confused, seems like right strap will be backwards and what is “in yellow” and ” in turquoise”? thanks for the pattern though, i hope i can figure it out because these are very cute and i am in need of several unisex patterns this year.

    1. Hi! I’m glad you like my booties. I’m sorry there are some confusing parts. The “in yellow” and “in turquoise” are for the pdf version of the pattern. I thought I took those out for the web version, but obviously not. Sorry about that. They denote where to start the strap. For the strap, fasten off and then re-attach the yarn, 3 stitches toward the front of the shoe, from where you left off. The first few stitches of the strap are around the back post, then around the front post as it comes around to the toe of the shoe. I will be making some of these today for a shower gift. Would a picture tutorial help?

      1. thank you for your reply. yes, i think photos would help me. i did improvise the instructions a little for stitch count And ended up with a decent looking LEFT shoe and i have finished another body and tried attaching the strap for a RIGHT shoe at the toeand following left strap instructions but i guess i should have attached at the last slip stitch and worked back towards the toe. in any case, i have to redo a strap for right shoe. am i supposed to be stitching the strap from the inside of the shoe out or from the outside in? for the left shoe, i added 3 sc to get to the beginning rather than fasten off and reattach.

      2. I added a brand new post- all about the Little Man Button Loafers. I made a photo tutorial. My video didn’t work out like I had hoped, but I think the photos will help you get on the right track. If you’re still confused, please let me know and I can try to get the video to work. 🙂 Thank you!

  2. I was just working on a video tutorial and realized that on Round 4 of the body- the sc 2 at the beginning should actually be at the end. So, that round should read: “Sl st 6, sc2tog, hdc2tog, dc2tog, dc, dc2tog (This stitch should be right at the front center of the shoe), dc, dc2tog, hdc2tog, sl st 6, sc 4.” I’m really sorry about all of the mistakes. I actually revised the pattern a few months ago, but some of the revisions only made it on my Word document and I didn’t get them moved to the web version. Gr! I will get all of the revisions posted as soon as possible.

    When doing the strap, you begin at the inside of the shoe. It folds over from inside to the button on the outside. I will hopefully get these videos posted soon.
