DIY - Baby Booties

Over the summer I was blog hopping and someone showed a pair of baby booties they made from Precious Patterns Etsy shop.  And what can I say - I fell in love with some of their styles.  So I ordered the pattern and it's been sitting in my inbox waiting for to be made into an adorable pair for Miss Avalynn.

So - when shoe shopping last Friday for my shoes for the wedding the next day, procrastinate much? - nope not me!  I picked up a pair of silver dress shoes for Miss A, only to get home and realize they were way too big.  At least she can grow into them.  But she definitely needed something for her little piggies, fall weather has decided to grace us with her presence finally and I didn't want her little piggies cold.  I remembered this pattern I had.  Unfortuantely, on hand I only had some $.99 felt from Michael's and I rummaged through my ribbon stash and found the perfect color for her dress.

I must admit that the Hubs actually is the one who sewed them, he's much better at my sewing machine than I am (he's the one who taught me how to use it) and as it was the only piece of felt in that color we had, I really didn't want to mess them up.  I cut out the pieces and pieced them together.

Anyways - these were so simple to make and adorable to boot! *no pun intended*
