It all started with a granny square blanket, well actually it started with yarn lust. The yarn was exceptionally soft and had such a pretty combination of colours. There was purple, light green, yellow and then a variegated one to match. I made the granny square blanket first and had just a little yarn to spare. My sister had sent me some patterns she purchased (here) to have me make booties for her new baby girl. Well those scraps screamed at me to make more booties to go with this blanket.
As you can see I had all the patterns and was trying to decide which ones to make.
I started with the purple and made the sole of the bootie.
Then I switched thread and used the variegated one to do the pattern part, and completed it with purple, and sewed on the little white buttons.
The second pair made with pearly white and pink yarn. I love these!!
This is the completed product. I think they turned out well and they only took me about 45 minutes each Bootie.
