Citrus Barefoot Sandals Pattern by Divine Debris
Citrus Barefoot Sandals Pattern by Divine Debris

As I said when I made the Kayla Barefoot Sandals a year ago, barefoot sandals just so freakin’ cute. Sure, I don’t wear them all that often, but I also am not big on leavin’ the house. Outside is cold or hot, humid and there are bugs. So, when I feel like it, I wear them around the house for fun, because lookin’ down at them I smile and think how cute they are. Do you tend to wear a lot of barefoot sandals?
This design, the Citrus Barefoot Sandals, I’ve had written, mostly, for a while. I designed these based on the Citrus Ring I debuted back in February but other things came up, you know how that goes, and I didn’t get the pattern written out and published until now. I hope you like the pattern. Add this to your Ravelry queue or faves here.
