To start with, I would definitely recommend this pattern.
The instructions by Ceradka are very clear and the booties are easy to knit, once you find the right number of stitches to fit your yarn and the sole size you'd like to get (for example I had to go down from 34 to 26 and from size 3.5 needles to size 3.0 in order to get smaller sized booties).
The assembly and adding the finishing touches takes more time than the knitting, but what you'll have in the end is a pair of very beautiful and I'd say non-traditional booties, so the time investment is totally worth it. You can decorate the booties in any way you like - I tried different buttons and crochet flowers before I chose the ones you're seeing in the pictures.
So, if you would like to go for these booties, here are some more details:
Where to find it: Ceradka's Shop on Etsy
Time for the project: Between 4 and 6 hours based on my own experience (it will take you longer if you have to adjust the size)
Difficulty: Medium (beginners might find the re-joining of the yarn in some parts and the assembly a bit too difficult)
