Projects: Baby Booties
Today’s project is a pair of baby booties, done in parchment, for my niece who is due in April. If your friends generally come here from Facebook, I must apologize. I have not posted this project on my Facebook page and probably won’t until the baby arrives.
She knows that she will be having a baby boy, and the nursery is being decorated in various shades of blues. So, I dorso’d a half sheet of parchment with a lovely shade of blue.
The pattern itself is from one of the older Japanese books that I have. It was also one of the less feminine bootie patterns that I have on hand. This particular pattern uses a minimal number of tools, for those of you that are just do not have all the tools on hand — your embossing tools, a 4-needle tool, and a 2-needle tool. I also used the large and small sun tools, but if you don’t have those, you could use your small embossing tool.
I did have a bit of a time putting these things together, partly because they are quite tiny, and my 36fingers are a bit big and don’t move so well. But, I did finally get them together.
One of the neatest ways to show off your little booties is in an acrylic ball. I found one at my local JoAnn’s for 99¢! This is how Nelly shows off her little booties, and it really is a wonderful way to help keep this keepsake safe.
