DIY Baby Booties
Hello, Everyone! I’m excited to show some of the new things I have been making on my sewing machine. I love sewing so much, and every day I see something new on Pinterest or Youtube and get excited about making it. This time around, I saw the cutest baby booties on Youtube. They were perfect for a beginner sewer like me, and also convenient because I needed a gift for my cousin’s baby shower.
The video that I came across was from The DIY Mommy and she also had a free pattern. I printed this pattern out and used the 0-3 month size. I went out to Walmart and got some fat quarters in gray and white and elastic. I also used some leftover tie dye fabric, black leather, and gold trim to add to my materials.
All I needed was fabric, scissors, elastic, pins, and my sewing machine! This was perfect for me because I am not an experienced sewer at all. But, I am faking it until I make it.
I used the pattern by placing the cutouts onto scrap fabric and pinning it down. I then cut them out and used the piece that I cut out as a guide for my fabric of choice. These cut outs will be useful for future projects that I make with this pattern.
After completing each section, I made sure to pin them all together so that I could sew them evenly. After I finished sewing, I cut the excess fabric so that the booties would be even once they were turned to the correct side.
My cousin loved these booties, and I did too. I will continue to work on my execution of them and create other items in the baby world.
