Free Pattern to Make Your Own Baby Booties

bitty-booties-blue.jpgThings have gotten so crafty around here lately with all sorts of patterns and instructions for how to make lots of breastfeeding and baby accessories. When I saw these adorable baby booties and the free downloadable pattern from Heather Bailey (via Kiddley), I couldn’t resist sharing them too. You can make these Bitty Booties from any combination of thick wool suiting, high-quality felt, leather or ultra-suede. The instructions offer patterns for sizes 0-3 months and 3-6 months but I suspect you could readily adapt the pattern for larger sizes. For inspiration and wonderfully creative ideas for how to decorate your own Bitty Booties, take a look at the flickr pool of over 100 photos of completed projects!

bitty-booties-felt.jpgNow don’t get the mistaken impression that I have time to sit around and make crafts all day long. I realize that new mothers aren’t going to have a lot of free time on their hands! This would be a fun project to make while you’re pregnant or to give as a baby gift. Of course, if you think these Bitty Booties would be adorable on your own child (who wouldn’t?!) then I hope you’ll enjoy taking the time out to sew this rewarding project!

    “Someday” for me too – my husband says I’m not “allowed” :) to start a new sewing project until I’ve finished the last one (generally a good rule, I grudgingly admit). I still need to sew some ties on the last batch of baby bibs!
