Baby Booties

I know, I know...another baby craft! All this thinking about babies almost makes me want another one right now, better get crafting on other things! I've been eye-ing some cute baby booties for a while now, and since I'm some sewing kick right now I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'll admit that the first one seemed to take forever, but the second little bootie was super easy once I knew what I was doing and didn't have to look at the instructions every 3 seconds! Ugh... I'm glad I made them, and I'll be making more, since it seems like everyone I know is pregnant! So here is yet another suggestion for all you beginner sewers like me, looking for a cute baby gift that is simple, cute, and very inexpensive...LOVE that!
These are the last little part (I think) to this little baby gift, hope she likes it! Oh, almost forgot to tell you where to find this FREE pattern...Here! ;)

>Just made up these too! These will be going to a little boy expected this week, I can't wait to meet him :) I decided to try my first "refashion" project with this old (but new with tags) khaki jacket I never wore, and a random black pleather piece I had on hand for the sole of the bootie. This cost me $0! NOTHING :)

Materials Before:


Still needs a little bit of touching up, but not so bad for a struggling sewer ;)
