Baby Booties

Posted by 2ton Inspired on April 18, 2008

On Wednesday Craftzine posted about a Baby Bootie contest and inserted a few adorable pictures of booties as in inspiration. I was in awe. Some of them are so darling and I’m sure they take up just tiny bits of fabric (which I have a lot of!)

Following the link to flicker to all photos tagged Baby Booties I was in bootie heaven and found a few to die for booties from sellers on Etsy. One of my favorites has got to be Funky Shapes. Go check out the shop! You’ll be ohh-ing and ahh-ing at every little pair.

A while back I bookmarked a tutorial from BareMaked on how to make reversible baby booties thinking someday I’d want to make them. I think this weekend is that day! Another pattern I just found is from Stardust Shoes. They look pretty similar, but the construction might be a bit different. I haven’t looked closely at the patterns yet.


On another note, knitting/crocheting has been pretty scarce (hence the lack of posts). I did just receive my order from Knitpicks and plan to start on (another!) pair of fingerless gloves for my mom. The weather is getting warmer these days so I hope she can get some wear out of them yet. Hopefully these will retain their shape better since the yarn has a bit of elastic in it. But more lamenting on the need for multiple pairs later when they’re finished!
