Another dreadful photo, my apologies! It’s an old one, actually, that I came across when I was sorting out some old pics on the laptop.
I was obsessed with making the cutest bootees ever, and thought that little football/soccer boots would be quite sweet.
HOWEVER……..I failed to take into account the extra chub that little people like to wear around their feet, ankles, legs…well, all over really. Which meant that these particular baby shoes were almost impossible to get on – oops!
I thought I would share the pic anyway in case anyone out there is in a babyshoe kind of mood and would like some inspiration. Just remember to allow for babies’ adorable fatness when making up the “sock” part 🙂 If anyone does re-work this idea, I would love to see a picture!
Tonight I am working on a cardigan for a friends little girl, who is almost a year old. It should be finished by tomorrow, with luck, and I look forward to sharing some pics – as the design took on a life of it’s own, as these things often do. For me, at least!
