Pattern available now! Nautilus Sandals Ravelry Pattern Link
Put the winter boots away, schedule a pedi and get your toes ready for the Nautilus Barefoot Sandals CAL! Summer will be here before you know it and you’re going to want to have these adorable sandals in your swim wear wardrobe!
These darling sandals were designed by Tamara Curry. Tamara says they reflect her addiction to walking barefoot combined with her passion for anything and everything ocean related. They feature a pretty nautilus shell and some shiny pearls.
The body is crocheted using cotton thread so your sandals will be very light, easy to wear and they will dry fast after getting wet. Check the CAL details below…you won’t want to miss this one! The CAL pattern will be available on Ravelry April 10th.
Meet the designer!
Tamara is a stay at home mom to twins Zach & Zoe. She is originally from Italy and moved to the US in 2014 when she was 25 weeks pregnant with her twins. Tamara told us she was only 7 years old when she began to crochet but, like so many of us, as the years passed and having a full time job she found she didn’t have much time to crochet or design. Lately though, she has found more time available to crochet as well as learning how to tat. She opened an Etsy shop in May of 2016 to celebrate the twin’s second birthday. Tamara also enjoys traveling, especially to the sea! You’ll want to be sure to check out her Facebook page, Tammy’s Needle Trinkets.
