Molly’s Sketchbook: Felt Baby Shoes
I think it’s lovely to welcome a little one into the world surrounded by thoughtful handmade gifts, and these itty-bitty boots are just the ticket for such a reception. Brimming over with the “awww” factor, everyone who sees these Felt Baby Shoes wants to pick them up and coo, almost as if they contained a chubby little baby foot already! Sometimes when I get on a roll with a fun and easy project like this, it’s hard to stop. In this case, I ended up with a pile of eight pairs of shoes, all from one Purl Soho Wool Felt Bundle! Our gorgeous Autumn Bundle covers a beautiful spectrum of warm earth tones, just right for boys or girls. And a bright red, hand-embroidered edge finishes the color story with a zing, while adding a sweet handmade, rustic charm. I love the idea of sewing up a big bunch of booties to have on hand for baby showers and welcome-to-the-world gifts. Materials To make eight pairs of 3 month sized baby shoes: Pattern Cutting and Pinning Cut two 1-inch lengths from the elastic.
