Ok. Remember back when I did that post featuring 1 Baby Project for Each Week of Pregnancy? Well all you preggers out there are going to wish for Forty-ONE week pregnancy because these felt baby shoes are cuteness to the max!
Not to mention easy-peasy. In case you aren’t a regular here, I don’t sew. Ever. Okay? But I hand stitched these baby booties, so they MUST be simple because I am to craft as salt is to snail (sorry, that was totally gross).
ANYWAY….you know how buying baby shoes are totally pointless because babies don’t walk and they kick the darn things off anyway? Well I know half of you buy them anyway just for the cuteness factor, so I’m here to save you some Washingtons, because these things cost pennies. And you’ll probably end up wanting them in every color. Even brown.
So skip the $45 dollar baby Nikes and open your mind to the new world of 25-cent baby felt baby shoes.
Yeah, I said 25-cents. Granted, that is the cost for the felt and I am assuming you already have the basic sewing supplies (needle and thread baby).
Is your mind blown?
TO MAKE THEM:
I used the pattern from Purl Bee. I used felt sheets to cut the pattern out of (one sheet does one pair of shoes, unless you are making a bigger size, then I used 2). I then used embroidery thread to make the blanket stitch around the edges. For the cute floral-y ones, I just used printed felt with that pattern.
The fun thing about these DIY baby booties is that you can embellish them however you please! I get my fun flowers and embellishments from Fleuriste Craft Supply. They have AWESOME stuff and really great prices. I have a friend who owns a hairbow company and she recommended them to me awhile back.
Aren’t they adorable? My little disclaimer is that I haven’t added the elastic yet. We had some good sunshine today, so I hurried and took pictures of them while I had some good lighting. Don’t judge me for taking pics before I actually finished.
And if you think these are even someone cute, you need to check out my post on baby barefoot sandals. Oh my word. They take like 2 minutes and they are ridiculously cute.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? What is the easiest project for baby you have ever done?
