Lucky Baby

Posted by 2ton Inspired on March 17, 2008

My cousin just moved back home from California this past week with her newish (4 month) old baby and husband. In anticipation of some of the new baby boys in my family I had made Mister Bear. I thought he would make a nice homecoming gift for the little one.

Saartje's Bootees and Mr. Bear

After making my first pair of Saarjte’s Booties I couldn’t resist making another right away. These whipped up much faster since I was already familiar with the pattern. I also made them in the larger size since I wanted to make sure they would fit. The buttons match one of the twisted strands in the bottom half of the bootie.

They’re so darling! His mom just loved them and said they would fit him soon.

And for comparison, the small sized next to the big sized.
