Crochet Baby Barefoot Sandals

My neighbor came over tonight and asked if I could make some of these as her son and daughter in law are expecting a baby soon.  I saw some really cute ones on Etsy but decided to just wing it.  I sure hope they will fit.  It's been awhile since I've been around a little baby.

The following are just my notes & not a pattern:
Using sz 3 crochet thread & sz D (3.25 mm) hook, Ch 8.  Join.
Ch 3, 2dc in loop, turn
Ch3,  dc in same st. Dc in next st.  2dc in top of ch3 from previous row.  Turn.
Continue inc in this manner until last row is made of 9 dc.  Ch 36 and cut thread.  Join @ top of other side & ch 36.  Cut thread.  Weave in ends.  Make 2 flowers and attach to top of feet.
Flowers:  ch 8 and sl st in 1st ch.  Ch 8 and sl st in same ch.  Repeat until you have 8 loops.  Cut thread and pull end through center of flower.  Pull tail until center closes almost closed.  Make another flower this way but only ch 6 instead of 8.  Pull tail tightly closed, stack atop larger flower and feed tails through larger flower then pull larger center tightly shut.  Attach to top of sandal.  Repeat for other sandal.
