Fat Tuesday does feet
Adorbs right? And they finally fit! I made these from Anna Maria Horner's book Handmade Beginnings way back when I was pregnant with Missy, (who turned 16 months today- sad and wonderful at the same time), and didn't know if she was a Miss or a Mister, (pay no attention to the large pink polka dot- good thing she was a girl eh?). They are super charming and easy. It probably took me three hours to make these and that was waaaay back two years ago when I was considerably slower. Cozy flannel on the inside and cotton on the outside- I should have used some sweet "Little Folks" fabric but sadly I didn't know where to buy it at the time. (Which, incidentally, if you live in the San Diego area go by Maisonette for fabric- great selection and darling girls to buy it from. I love them). If I made these again I might cut down the pattern for a newborn and spring for some colored elastic. Go over here and see where I blogged about them before, (or go over there because you can see them on cute baby feet).
(A word on covered buttons because Melody asked me to share- they're easy and fun, you can buy them over here. They don't take a big fancy machine, just a simple rubber knob that usually comes with the bottons. I like to put a hair elastic thru the loop of the button and use them as last minute presents for little girls or just on any clothing project- they definitely take take handmade up a notch).
