Sweet Little Booties

sweet dress

Have I mentioned how much I love making baby booties? Yes, I'm sure I have.  Have I told you why I love making them?  Probably, but here goes again.  They are so stinking cute and tiny.  Much like baby feet.  Small, perfect, and oh, so sweet.

One of the hardest things about being back in the states is knowing I will miss the birth of our third niece, scheduled to arrive in just a few weeks.  At least if I couldn't be there, I knew she would need something sweet from her Aunt Jen.  These little Mary Jane's were perfect to go with the little dress I got her.  With this one being the third little girl born to Zach and Anneke, mama was getting a little tired of pink....so I tried to go easy on the pink.  Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Pea Green matched the dress perfectly.  And these booties take so little yarn that you have plenty leftover for more!

A little flower embellishment and they were off to S. Africa via some friends.  I hope they fit those precious little feet!

What adorable booties!! Love your color choice and embellishment.

I've returned to blogging, but have super narrowed my focus and also the number of blogs I read. Purposing to keep my "virtual" life in check!

Such beautiful little booties! I don't have any friends having little girls, so I'll just have to wait until I have a chance to make some myself!
