One of the great parts of handmade is making something special for others. With babies in the near future for two friends, I knew I definitely wanted to make their gifts. Quilts are always such an appealing idea to me for baby gifts, but with my tendencies towards procrastination, not a good option. Instead, I’ve been keeping my eyes out for handmade shoe patterns for baby.
I made a set of slip-on baby booties for each mom to be, using the template and directions from Fleeting Thing.com.
I added a short elastic band as I sewed the top and bottom pieces together so I would not have to hand stitch in the elastic after the fact.
Aren’t these so cute?
