Of course, this means that the sewing can now begin! So, I made her a little congratulations gift. One pair of baby girl booties for every day of the week!!
I used these two patterns:
|Still in Simplicity's current catalogue!
|This Amy Butler book is full of all kinds
of fun baby sewing projects
Let's take a closer look.
Sunday slippers for lounging around:
Some casual but pretty shoes to kick off the week on the right foot on Monday:
Pretty flowers to keep her twinkle toes fresh as a daisy on Tuesday:
She'll have these pretty little pinks to get her over the Wednesday blues:
My favourite, ballet flats for Thursday, just because:
Another pair of slippers to kick back in for Friday:
And the cutest pair of trainers you've ever seen, to run around town with her mom and big brother on Saturdays.
Gen and her family are Francophone so my gift tag is en français. Félicitations is Congratulations in French, and the back is supposed to say Warm Feet, Warm Heart but I have a feeling it actually says Heat the Feet, Heat the Heart. My French is horrible (désolé) but I think Gen will get it.
Both of the patterns were easy to use but I have to say I didn't really follow the directions. Both of them were a little confusing and Amy Butler tends to over explain things. This might be good for a first time sewer but it just confuses me when she takes 4 long paragraph steps to say - fuse the interfacing onto the back of your fabric.
What's you're favourite thing to make for babies? Do you like sewing for boys or girls? Does it matter when everything turns out so cute in the end? Leave a comment~
