Stitch This: Baby Booties pattern

Pin It
 Handmade Baby Booties

Keep your kids’ feet nice and toasty with incredibly cute, easy-to-make fleece booties.  This project is from the Babies episode of Creative Juice on HGTV & DIY.

Supplies:
Booties pattern - see below
1/4 yard fleece fabric
9 inches 1/4” soft elastic
16” Decorative ribbon
Sewing machine
Matching thread
Scissors & pins

Steps:


1. Pin the pattern in place on the fleece fabric (make sure you place the pattern on the fold of the fabric) and cut around the pattern. Repeat this for the second bootie.


2. Remove the pins and open the booties up, place them right sides down.


3. Cut the elastic in half (1 piece for each bootie) and following the pattern, sew stretched elastic across the appropriate stitching line, repeat on second bootie.


4. Fold the bootie in half (rights sides together). Cut the ribbon in half (1 piece each bootie) and fold the ribbon in half and pin in the marked spot (see pattern). Pin and sew around the edge with a 1/4-inch seam allowance.



5. Turn right side out and tie the ribbon in a bow. Use your scissors to cut fun fringe at the top of the bootie. Repeat steps 2-4 for the second bootie.

    I make these booties alot for the babies in my life. I saw these Creative Juice a couple of years ago. I love them.

    I really miss not seeing your show. I think there should be a channel just for crafts. For shows just like Creative Juice, Uncommon Threads, Knitty Gritty, Simply Quilts and Carol Duvall. I really miss seeing these. And would love to see some new ones, especially if you and Steve were hosting. I also loved to watch Vicki Howell, and some of the other creative ladies that used to be on. Just my two cents worth. Nan fabricandyarn@aol.com
