Since I discovered craft blogs a few years ago, there have always been a few tutorials out there I have wanted to try. This is one of the them...Bitty Booties by Heather Bailey.
When I found out a friend was having a little girl, I wanted to do something special, and something that didn't require me to sit for hours at my sewing machine. The Bitty Booties seemed like a perfect thing to try.
Since this mama loves leather boots, I chose a soft brown wool blend felt. Then I made the tiniest yo yos that I've ever tried. A spool of thread was my template.
I hand appliqued the yo yos into a flower pattern and added a felt leaf with some additional embroidery.
I stitched a blanket stitch around the opening, too. Then I decided to be insane and add a flannel lining.
I thought they would be softer and warmer with a lining, and I loved the candy pink color. These were not as easy to sew up, but I loved the results.
I hope the wee girlie (and her mama) love them too.
