I spent some time these last few days working on these:
A pair of "harvest booties" for a certain niece who should be making her appearance any day now.
Seeing as she'll be sharing a birthday month with her fabulous aunt and oldest girl cousin I thought it fitting we get her started on the right path, dressing her little tootsies in pumpkins. ;o)
I used this pattern, and then perused Etsy for some ideas to adorn them, doing my best to mimic these (sans bow).
It was definitely a fun project, although attaching the upper to the sole was a teeny bit tricky . . . if you can imagine trying to sew a decorative stitch around a porcupine (think lots of pins!!). ;o)
I'm happy I got them done. Hand sewing/embroidering is always so relaxing--every time I do it I wonder why I don't do it more.
Hopefully they'll arrive in my sister's mailbox today!
And hopefully not too much longer until they are on some brand-new feet!! ;o)
