Remember the shower I mentioned yesterday? I also gave Jenny and Joe this little pair of booties that I made:
I used a Simplicity pattern for the basic form of the shoe, but ended up changing the measurements so that I could have finished edges on the upper part of the shoe. I also hand stitched some satiny ribbon around the seems on the base of the shoe to give it a more finished look and to keep the baby's feet more comfortable. I made the flowers by hand and added clear beads to their centers for a little extra embellishment. The outer shoe and flowers are felt and the inner shoe is a brightly colored funky tie dye fabric. I wish I had more friends having babies - they were fun to make!
