baby booties

I found this blog, All for this Penny awhile back and have really been enjoying it. She's a sew(er) and a crafter in general. She is really into re purposing clothes. We're practically BFFs, she just doesn't know me yet. She shared some baby slipper that she made recently from a pattern she purchased from etsy.

I don't have any little people who need slippers these days, but when she shared them a second time, I went right on over to Mon Petit Violon and bought a pattern for these two button moccasins, the one strap baby booties, and the baby boy hat. Baby gifts, they're for baby gifts. Not intended for personal use. They're almost cute enough to justify night wakings though. Almost.

My slipper are not the same size. I think for each successful pair, I'll probably have to make 3-4 slippers and find the two that best match! I did pick up a smaller crochet hook and some thinner yarn. It's darn near impossible to work with... but I have a long car ride to work on it this week.

I almost bought this pattern yesterday! I saw the post that makes them look like little frogs and was sold! I have the pattern site book marked. I couldnt bring myself to buy it with no babies on the way yet. Thats my rule.

Oh, you are too sweet! Thanks for the link and for the nice comments!

After my first go around I ended up buying smaller hooks and thinner yarn, too. Glad I'm not the only one having a difficult time with such teeny hooks! :)
