Multicolour Booties

imageThe colour of these booties is gorgeous! These ones are for a newborn, and will shortly have matching scratch-mits.

Things I’ve learnt:

1) Multocolour wool is great.

2) Making booties requires thinking about what will be used as a fastener! This may sound obvious, but having never made booties before (or been around babies!) I hadn’t given it a thought. I’ve used poppers, but I think next time I’ll consider Velcro. A lot of patterns on the internet use tie fastening (with ribbon or yarn) but I imagine poppers or velcro are a bit more user friendly for whoever is securing the shoes to the baby!
