A few weeks ago I said I might make a sewing pattern for some fabric baby booties. Well, here it is. I have called it ‘Lowen’ which means happy in Cornish. They can be made from very small amounts of fabric and a short piece of elastic, are equally suited to a boy or a girl and they stay on!
Plenty of Etsy sellers have handmade fabric baby booties in their shops, but few seem to want to sell their patterns. (I can’t blame them; they can sell the finished booties for quite a lot of money and, once you have a pattern, they are not that difficult to make.) The Lowen Baby Booties pattern is available in my shop in a printed paper version and also as a PDF. These baby booties can be made in sizes 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months.
No more baby booties patterns planned (for a while anyway) as I need to get back on with knitting my way through my stash and I don’t think baby booties are going to make much of an impact on that! I have said before that my stash contains about a year’s worth of serious knitting but I think it’s probably nearer to two years worth. (At least!) I also need to make myself a dress and jacket for my youngest daughter’s graduation and there is a time constraint on that one.
