Baby Booties


Last night around 8pm, I had the sudden need to sew-anything! I have so many projects 1/2 started and I want to finish those up, but......new book, sewing for baby? Yeah, it won. I sewed these cute little shoes from the new Anna Marie Horner book. I debated starting with the 3-6m size because my kids tend to be large at birth. At the last minute I went with the 0-3m and I'm glad I did. They are not super tiny, but actually look like they will be a little big [yay!]. Some bootie patterns run so small! Not these.

The fabric is a cool, Alexander Henry print featuring tattoo designs. I LOVE this fabric and only had a small piece left, the perfect size for this project! I already started on another pair in sweet yellow, with frogs, from the Heather Ross far far away line. [I can't wait until Part 2 of the line arrives next month! I better start saving $$]

The ultrasound went great yesterday. Baby looks good, amniotic fluid looks good! They are guessing the baby will be between 8.5-9 lbs. So not that big after all! Yay! They were worried about a 10+ pounder. I got a last peek at the baby before he/she arrives. I sure hope it's soon [as in tomorrow is perfect] , I'm so anxious & getting quite uncomfortable! The baby was sucking on it's hands, which was super cute to watch! My older kids thought they were going to tell me the exact day the baby would arrive. They were thoroughly disappointed when I told them, no one can guess that!

Off to sew a pair of "sweet" booties to go with these "cool" one's. Enjoy your weekend!
