Baby booties

A friend of mine is pregnant and her baby shower is soon, so I made her these booties. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones, which you may remember I won from Craftsanity a while back. This is the first project I've made from the book. The instructions were a little hard to follow at some parts, but I think the booties turned out okay. The pattern I used was for size 3-6 months, and I don't think I'd go any smaller because they're pretty little and it would be hard to sew something tiny on the machine. 

Here's what the bootie looked like inside-out. My friend is having a boy and I get the impression that she's pretty firm about enforcing gender roles, so I did what I could to make something boy-ish. I like the cute plaid, and I think the green lining really pops. There are more babies on the way for other folks, so I may get pretty good at making these. 

Edited to add: I just added a ton more crafty links to the sidebar. Enjoy!
