I found the template for these sweet baby booties on Cross Stitcher. They are very easy to make and you can whip a pair up in a surprisingly short time.
You will need:
Ribbon or buttons for decoration
2x poppers – optional
I veered slightly from the suggestions in Cross Stitcher; I went for plain instead of embroidered; I used a tiny ribbon bow instead of buttons for decoration; and I added a popper on the outer side (beneath the bow) to make sure the booties don’t slip off her tiny feet.
I think these are adorable, so cute in fact that I’ve not been able to wrap them up but have left them on the sideboard where I can coo at them! Now she’s finally here it’ll be worth parting with them though!
I made these on the train to work and was quite proud to hear a lady next to me tell me they are “so cute”. Then again, anything baby-sized will tug at your heart-strings. I’ll be testing the cute v’s size argument soon because my boyfriend has asked me to make a man-sized pair for him as slippers. I will stick proper soles to his as unlike little Annabelle, he has mastered the use of his legs and I don’t think felt could withstand the wear and tear of walking. I’ll blog soon to let you know how it goes.
I’ll also post soon about the other treats I’ve made Annabelle, including a mobile and baby blanket.
