So yesterday I went to my friends’ baby shower, and made these booties as a gift. I used Heather Baily’s pattern, and then embellished them using some left over lace and buttons that my grandmother gave me. These were the first booties I had ever made, and her pattern was really easy to follow, so this is a great project for a beginner seamstress.
I’m also really inexperienced with embroidery, but I used a simple blanket stitch to secure the openings (and add some serious cuteness). I used this video as a tutorial. (oh internet, I love you)
Last winter I accidentally put my boyfriend’s cashmere sweater in the drier, so I used some of this felted wool for the booties. (sorry, babe)
