My daughters friend is expecting her first baby in February, they have literally been friends all of their lives. Their birthdays are only 6 weeks apart and they had their first playdate when they were just 6 & 12 weeks old, they started school together at the same nursery when they were three and shared classes all the way through their senior years in education. It is quite amazing seeing this young lady that I have known all her life producing a new life herself.
I could not resist making these Converse style bootees for the little man, yes she already knows IT’S A BOY!
This cute pattern has been squirrelled away in my little stash, of ‘things to make one day’, for a while now and I have been waiting for the opportunity to give it an airing. I must be honest and say that it was on the third boot that I felt happy with how it was looking, it took the three goes to get the hang of making the front sit nicely – this was totally down to me being too eager to finish and not reading the pattern more carefully.
As I so often do I I have used good old Stylecraft DK which is always so great to work with, the choice of colours is fantastic especially for these little boots.
Then on to my favourite finishing touch – the laces!
So if you have a little critter of your own or indeed anyone else’s you want to make these for……… the pattern by Suzanne Resaul is available via the home of many great patterns – Ravelry.
Please note that this pattern has kindly been made available for you to use and enjoy free of any charge, also you may sell shoes from the pattern, the only thing is that is required is that you give the credit for the pattern design to Suzanne, and lets face it, she really does deserve it.
THANK YOU SUZANNE.
