Itty Bitty Baby Booties

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

About a year ago, I found Heather Bailey while searching online for a fun gift for a friend who was into sewing.  The colors on her site are amazing (she makes a fabric line), and she has some fun patterns - even free ones!  I printed out the pincushion pattern and put it in a cute sewing basket with some pretty fat quarters for my friend.

But the important part of this story is that I also found a pattern for precious little baby booties.  And they stuck on my brain.  Logan was too big for them, but the same friend I gave the sewing gift was expecting girl #2.  Should I attempt?

I hadn't really used my sewing machine for more than throw pillows and scrapbooking, so I gave up and found some precious ones on etsy (where there were MANY to choose from).  I bought these super cute ones from JolieBerry.  Adorable, huh?

Now that I'm a more skilled sewer (is that a word? Or should I say seamstress?) I've seen other tutorials on the blogs I follow.  Now I just need a friend to have a baby so I can give it a try.  Preferably a girl, because they can get away with much cuter shoes.  Any volunteers?
