Bitty Booties

Actually Anna Maria Horner calls these Cute As A Button Booties, but they are itty bitty, so I'm calling mine Bitty Booties.

I made these out of one of my favorite boy fabrics.  It's called Heartbreaker, and I've searched long and hard online to find a link for you, but I can not find it.  It was a treasure I found at Happy Quilt in S. Korea.  I have 2 yards, and will use it sparingly.

Like this pictures?  Does it maybe look like the cover of this book?  I'm loving my Handmade Beginnings book. I have two more projects in the works from it, but I'm waiting on fabric to arrive in the mail.  I'm hoping I have 2 new projects from the book to share with you next week.

I really wanted a full outfit to go with the bitty booties, but all I could come up with were pants.  I did a little reverse applique on the knees/shins.  I used the pattern for the Quick Change Trousers, but I didn't make these reversible.  That means it took me like 45 minutes instead of an hour and a half to make them.  Beautiful.

I was going to make a onesie, but after I made the pants, I decided to use the Heartbreaker fabric to make a matching onesie would be a little too much.  Plus I wasn't sure what kind of design to put on the onesie.  I looked through hundreds of onesies on Etsy for an idea, but nothing spoke to me.  Annee suggested an initial, but that would require the Italian and I deciding on what we are naming our baby boy.  No such decisions have been made, so there is no onesie to go with these cute pants and booties.  I'm sure I'll come up with something before my little one's arrival.  I have 3 more months.

Making a onesie isn't going to be hard at all, but choosing a name is turning out to be very difficult!

You almost have me convinced that we might need another little baby in this house. (wink!)

I don't think that outfit even needs a onsie to make it any cuter. Those pants! Those booties! It's all ridiculously cute. I have two yard of that fabric too. I'm afraid to use it!

Thank you for all the bitty booty love. They really are so cute!!

Emily, I'd share the pattern if it was mine. It's a pattern in Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings called Cute As A Button Booties.

If you aren't wanting to buy AMH book, then I'd suggest this free pattern. http://www.michaelmillerfabrics.com/blog/cloth_shoe.pdf

It's not the exact same, but I've used it before and it makes cute little booties.
