My first steps

I attempted knitting baby booties but I guess I don't have much patience for it. I kept losing my counts on when to purl and to knit or yarn over etc and since i'm used to it, I tend to get everything jumbled up and unable to retract what I have just done neatly. My patterns ended up crooked and so I gave up.

I stumbled upon some scrap clothing from my mom's previous sewing projects and searched over the internet and found tutorials on sewing baby booties :)

One I found was over at Joanna Armour's Stardust Blog. You can find the tutorial of making them yourself Here.

Here are some of the shoes I have made. Once I started I just couldn't stop. It just seems as though I was obsessed with making them! they are just so cute!! 

This was actually the first shoe I made! From simple plain red and yellow cotton fabrics and an unwanted green stripped shirt that my sister Rachel didn't want anymore.. It actually turned out super cute :)

I made two with this fabric pattern, but I gave one of them away as a gift to a friend of mine who had just had her adorable baby girl. Hers had a red bow to it.

This one is quite thick... but comfortable at the same time. Reminds me of Christmas time... It looks so comfy that I just want to slip my own two feet in them!

From a Bandanna to a shoe... And I've even made another one in...

Blue :)

I got carried away really... I was going nuts on making tonnes of booties. My man was trying to figure me out!

I was on my way up the stairs to my room when I saw a pair of socks still new in its packaging and thought... HEY... another shoe? Why not?! this one's a thick one too. So comfy!

I decided that I had to stop before I get too far with the booties... So here's TWO for the album

Till I sew next :)
