Oh man, I’m excited. I’m excited because this is what my wonderful parents got me for Christmas –
Aint she a beaut? I am so so excited about the new world of DIY this baby will open. So many more possibilities!
My first solo sewing project is a big deal, ya know. After looking around online for some free templates, I found this blog post on modern baby booties. They’re so darn cute, I had to try.
Some good friends of our have a daughter that just turned 1 year old, so I decided to make these for her. I went with the 12-18 months so she can grow in to them.
They require two types of fabric, fusible, velcro, and two buttons.
The most time-consuming part (for me at least) was cutting the fabric.
Once I had the fabric cut, I jumped right in to the actual sewing. I got all wrapped up in it and forgot to take pictures of the process. So that’s why the next picture is of the finished shoes.
Hi, I’m forgetful. I think. I can’t really remember.
True fact: things are always cuter when they’re tiny. I was recently talking to a friend about this fact while we were passing by an ice cream shop. They sell tiny ice cream cones so we bought one. The first 3 people that saw it had some sort of reaction like “Awww, how CUTE!”
Aint nothin cute about less ice cream.
But it’s just so darn cute!
Anyways, back to the cute (because they’re tiny) shoes.
The straps actually velcro down. The buttons are just for show. Don’t tell anybody.
They were super fun to make and I’ve definitely got the bug for sewing now. I’ve already made plans for my next 9,237 sewing projects (give or take a few).
