Baby booties, take 2

blue baby booties 1

I made some baby booties a few months ago for a friend's baby shower. Some other friends just had their second child, so I figured I'd make him some little booties as well. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. It came together easier for me the second time. It's nice, but the pieces are small and it's a little fiddly to put together.

I used a bright lining because I liked the way it pops against the dark blue. I also like the fusible fleece in these--it adds softness and just enough structure to keep them from being too floppy.

These are just adorable!! I'm from Brazil and it's soo difficult to find handmade booties here... are these from the same pattern on HB's site?? Would you be willing to share the pattern for these cuties? I have a baby girl and would love to make something like these for her... Once again, congrats on the beautiful work!

Juliana - No, it's not the Heather Bailey pattern, it's the one from Amy Butler's Little Stitches book. I linked to it in the post.
