The cherry blossoms and daffodils are in bloom in Victoria. Winter is over and spring is in the air. My apologies to those of you that are still in the depths of winter, rest assured that spring is coming soon, and if you want to beat Mother Nature a trip to Victoria might help your winter blues. With spring comes babies, and itty bitty baby booties. I have been knitting hats for the babies that have recently come into this world, but Spring demanded a change in the welcome gifts. Shoes for babies might not be practical but they are cute, and I just couldn’t help myself. I now have a small stock of shoes to be given as shower/baby gifts. For the three moms that I gave these shoes to this week, please send me your feedback. Do these shoes stay on? Are they easy to put on?
I used standard stock felt from a craft/fabric store but not the felt from the dollar store it’s too thin. There are some great patterned felts out there which make super cute baby shoes. I added a felt sticker to the front of each shoe and stitched it on to jazz up the toes. If you are interested in making some felt baby booties follow this link for the pattern and great instructions.
