|Pattern Description: "Warm and cozy booties for little feet!" |
Pattern Sizing: Infant size 0 through youth size 6.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yep - even for someone who isn't very good at reading them, like me.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the drawstring around the ankle. It makes it more difficult for baby to remove the bootie. The style is also very gender neutral which is nice when you have a baby boy in a world that seems to be short on patterns for little dudes.
Fabric Used: Denim from an old pair of Levi's, cotton with anti slip dots, and some scraps of cotton twill and thin cotton batting.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will certainly be sewing this again and I would recommend it to any mom, grandma, auntie, or friend to make for a little one. Cute and practical. How can you go wrong?
Conclusion: I can see using leather scraps to make the sole for shoe rather than a bootie/slipper - my boy is new to walking and shoes just make him trip. These booties are cute, easy to sew, take very little fabric, and the drawstring helps keep the shoe on. How can you go wrong?
