Tutorial Tuesday: Baby Booties with Free Pattern

Keeping your babies feet warm and cozy, while still being stylish is easier than you think! Angela of Handmade in the Heartland has provided this amazing tutorial on How to Sew Baby Booties with FREE Sewing Pattern

Since you only need a 1/4 metre of interior fabric and a 1/4 metre of exterior fabric, this is the perfect project to use up those small scrap pieces, or great for our 1/4 Metre Mystery Mix for a mix of different knit fabric types and prints. 
Angela describes them as in between a sock and a shoe. They also feature elastic on the ankle for easy wear so they don't fall off. Angela's instructions for sewing the elastic are perfect for helping beginners learn how to evenly distribute the stretch while sewing.  She even has a video guide to watch as you make them! 
If you know someone who is expecting, these make an excellent gift, and as they are so cheap and easy to make, you can make multiple sets to cover all options - Girl, Boy, Twins!
You can use practically any kind of knit fabric for these booties, some of our recommendations below -
