Check out these cute boots! I made them for a work friend who is going on maternity leave soon (or rather, I made them for the little one who will be arriving next month). I saw this pattern on the lovely (and also expecting) Veronica Darling's Pinterest board and knew that my friend would like them, so I picked up the pattern from I Think Sew and whipped them up last weekend.
I chose a maroon corduroy and grey felt from my stash (I figured the felt would be extra soft and cozy for baby toes). The boots open and close with velcro, which I suspect is much easier than fiddling around with buttons when it comes to little people, and the buttons on the outside are decorative.
It's such a cute pattern, and with a few of my friends due to have babies soon, I suspect it will get good use!
