Baby Booties

finished baby booties

The list of my friends that are having babies just keeps growing! For the past couple of years, my go-to gift for baby girls has been the Itty Bitty Baby Dress from Made by Rae (a few of my versions here and here). However, for Christmas I got a copy of Handmade Beginnings, a sewing book full of projects for babies, for moms-to-be, for dads(!) and for the home. I was pleasantly surprised by how many projects in the book could very easily be for non-baby applications – pillows, quilts, a messenger bag, etc. I marked a bunch of projects I wanted to try, and one was the “cute as a button” booties, which seemed perfect for a new-baby gift.

Conveniently, my sister gave me some fabric over Christmas that she had cut out for a tiered skirt years ago and has since given up on making, which happened to include some pink prints, perfect for a pair of baby booties. These booties took a little over two hours to make, and came together pretty easily. Next time I might alter the inner sole, which is attached via fusible interface. I’m a little unsure if the soles will actually stay attached that way. Has anyone relied on interfacing to connect fabric pieces? Does this really work?
