Butter Suede Booties....

 To balance my time remodeling the basement and redecorating the main floor, I find that a good time in the sewing room consists of preparing for several babies...
 I found out when my daughters had their babies, it really didn't matter what you registered for or what you needed, what people really want to give babies is little tiny clothes, especially girly things, AND footwear!!  As mentioned recently, accessories to the teeny footsies are as much fun to pick out and purchase as they are cute on the baby feets....

 So when Rabbit Rita's daughter came to visit her mama, it only seemed logical, that I get my best grandma bootie making skills in practice to make the most comfy booties ever,  for her first grandchild's sweet little tootsies.
 When Heather Bailey offers free patterns, I take advantage of them and download them tout de suite.heatherbailey.typepad.com/heather_bailey/.  So deliciously simple.  So basic, leaving every opportunity for embellishment and fanciful additions to the most simple of booties.
 Gotta admit, it was pretty hard to stop once the cuteness began.....
 Soft, buttery suede, embroidered edging, cutouts for a lacing, then the finale: soft baby blue flannel lining!
If I could add an orthotic to a nana sized sole, I would venture to make slippers for me out of this material..Very touchable....

Thank you Heather Bailey for the pattern and sharing your idea......

Anymore babies out there needed feet coverings??  I'm on a roll.......!!

  1. Those are so precious. Thanks for the link, I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try but I might as our daughter is having her 4th child in September so maybe grandma should at least take a look.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
