Baby Booties!!

I've been busy, busy, busy making things for Woolfest, which I'll share with you soon, however this weekend I've been a little distracted. I've been making baby booties for the Michael Miller Baby Bootie competition. The deadline is Wednesday! I've made a lot, some of which were abandoned half way through, but I've ended up with three pairs, the problem now is deciding which pair to enter.



No time to make anymore as I'm doing a 4 day felting course starting tomorrow. It's a master class in felt for clothing - techniques and methods for making thin felt fabrics with Charlotte Buch. I'm really excited, 4 whole days of felt making!!! My parents have come to look after the children, for which I am very, very grateful, thanks Mum and Dad. The only down side is I decided to commute rather stay in a B&B on my own, so I'll be setting off at 7.30, to head off down the A1/M1, it's been quite some considerable time since I drove to work in rush hour traffic!

They're all lovely, but if I had to choose one I'd go for the first pair (I changed my mind a couple of times while writing this post, so I can appreciate your problem!). Good luck!

They're all darling! I especially like the first one as well.

Those are adorable. I can't decide which I like better. Ummm.... maybe the top ones, maybe. That class sounds wonderful. Have fun!

Hi there!

Just popping in from 'The Land of Lurking' to tell you that your craft is AMAZING and you should definitely enter the first pair of booties... I adore them!
