a while back, leah and I fell in love with all of these shoes and wanted to make them all. it only took me a few months to get going on them and I hope they still fit H. I chose #23 baby booties because of their clean, simple design. you only have two pattern pieces, the top and the sole, so this couldn't be simpler.
unfortunately the pattern could have used some editing. I constantly got lost while making the first pair and eventually had to ignore and just look at the photos (or ignore everything). once you figure things out you don't really need to look at the pattern for the next pair. my first ones came out a little wonky, so I felt like I had to make a second set. the pink ones came out a lot better and were quicker to sew. I may love them a little too much.
