I started on some more sewing projects last week and I am lining up a few others to do. One of the things I like about Craftsy is they have a whole section of where crafters share projects to their profiles. It’s a great way to see what patterns they used and sometimes they even share a their free patterns. I came across these baby shoes and thought how adorable! I have to make some. Here is a little round up of baby projects I am doing, where to grab the patterns and book if your interested in making them yourself too!
Disclosure: These offers are my affiliates that I love at a great price! I think you will love these projects that are topping my list right now. These are all my 100% honest opinions. If you decide to make a purchase I will earn a small commission that helps with maintaining the site. Thanks in advance if you decide to make a purchase. You can see one of the finished projects from a link below.
First I came across this project via a crafter at Craftsy for the cutes baby booties!
When I went to the link for the pattern at Simplicity I couldn’t believe how expensive this one was. I researched it to find the best price and am sharing it in case you want to get it way cheaper! At Simplicity $10.15 At Amazon $3.97! The original list price was $16.97! Gulp!!
As you can see on this pattern their are several options for these baby booties and of course I think the Kimono style ones made by BitterPurl on Craftsy are adorable. She recommends making one out of muslin fabric just to get a feel for the pattern. And you can make yourself or the mom to be a pair too. She rates this patterns ease a two out of five for skill level. Meaning it’s a pretty easy project! Yeah!
Now I’m happy to say I am making several baby projects from Sweet Booties!
I picked this book up at a bookstore quite a while ago and since my oldest is due in May (you’ll be hearing me say that a lot!) I am happy to say I pulled it out and began some cute baby projects from it. I promise to share as I am going along and the finished projects and stay tuned as I finished one set of booties and shared them here! I will share the fabrics I picked and how the pattern process was for me. What is nice is the sewing is pretty simple and it comes with patterns.
You can see the original price was $14.95. Now they are priced on sale from as low as $4.95! New and Used!
When looking for the image to share with you I found it on sale at Amazon even less than what I paid for it at the bookstore! You can even thumb through the book to view contents.
Here’s a little blurb about the Sweet Booties pattern book
- & if you want you can peek through the book yourself via the link above to see all the patterns:
These irresistible and simple sewing projects—more than 30 of them—come from the freshest indie craft designers around! And that sets them apart from other collections for small fry; every blanket, bib, bonnet, and more is fashioned from contemporary fabrics and features a modern, slightly edgy aesthetic that moms and dads will really appreciate.
The adorable, stylish creations range from a pair of tiny flowered shoes tied with a ribbon to a pair of witty bibs for boys and girls. A brightly striped sunhat glows with the warm colors of summer, while a sweet blankie showcases the stitched outline of a doggie in an airplane with a border of little bones. Other projects flaunt lovely embroidered and appliquéd embellishments.
A “Sewing 101” section makes a great intro for beginners or a helpful refresher course. It features valuable tips specifically for baby projects, including laundry-friendly fabrics and safety advice on adornments.
