Bear with me

17 Feb

Ever since I saw this post on baby booties, I wanted to try and copy the design shown. Turns out it wasn’t that difficult to do, although I’m clueless as to which size these would be. I also couldn’t figure out how to avoid the inner seam if I wanted to stitch the rubber band into place between the layers. I hope it won’t bother the little feet too much.

I figure babies grow into whatever I make, right? The outer fabric is a sturdy cotton/linen mix from Superbuzzy via Pikku-Kettu. I could squeeze half a dozen of these out of the generous piece she gave me!

    What a beautiful pair of little booties! The fabric is great. I made similar booties for my daughter couple of months ago, only in bigger size. Here you can find a size guide: (Of course every child’s foot size varies.) Here is also a great tutorial for making booties: That is, in my opinion, the best pattern for baby booties; baby/child can’t kick these booties off the foot.
