Booties, booties, booties, booties rockin everywhere! 

When my daughter was born my friend Jess made her the cutest baby booties ever! Perfect for her tiny feet and reversible.  That was three years ago(!) and now with the arrival of baby boy I decided to try and make them on my own. My friend Jess had moved away so I was on the search for a pattern of my own. I immediately went to Pinterest. There are lots of options so I tried to find the ones that looked the most like my daughters shoes and that also had easy in he title. The first type I made was very easy but not reversible and had visible seams sticking out. I did some more searching and found the reversible pattern. It is a little intimidating and I am still working on it but here is the first pair I made…

Step 1: cut out pattern.
Step 2: cut out fabric, 4 of each= 2 shoes.
Use this thing

Ta-Da!

(Please excuse the messy background!)

I was so excited to have found this new pattern that I called one of my friends, who runs a local children’s clothing shop, and asked her if she would be interested in selling the booties. She loves the booties and that they are reversible! She suggested I also make a baby bib to coordinate with the shoes and we can sell them as a set. 

Today I got one pair done and am looking forward to making the five next pairs with matching bibs. Let’s see if between teaching ballet, working at a preschool, having a newborn, having a threenager, and being a wife I can finish these five more booties and six bibs!
