Baby Bootie Crazy and a Giveaway!

So today is my sister-in-law's baby shower. This go round she is having a girl, which will help as my daughter is the only granddaughter on that side of the family, so she is SPOILED ROTTEN!!!! Lol But I guess there could be worse things she could be. One of the things I am making for baby is a carseat cover, which is seeming like the norm for me to offer, even though I am not super fond of doing them. Hmmmm. With all the things that have been going on in this house the carseat has not even been started, let alone finished. So I made baby booties...and I am completely addicted! I was addicted a few years ago, but stopped as I got busy, but now! Wow, these are so wonderful!

These are the Stardust pattern. I like these, but my fabric choice made these a pain to deal with and took forever to finish. I used some leftover cream fleece for the inside and an old pair of jeans for the outside. Needless to say, these needed a heavy duty needle and were just not fun to make. Lol But that is my fault.
These on the other hand are amazing! I used the Mila Baby Shoe Pattern and let me just say that I could make these all day long! They came together so fast, turned out so cute, the possibilities of fabric and trim are endless and I would like to make them in my size. I highly recommend this pattern, especially if you are new to sewing! It was very simple to make, the instructions are very straight forward and I made these in less than an hour! It was awesome! The fabric I used on these were a pair of old gray corduroys that I had and the inside was cotton shirt I had gotten bleach on. I love making gifts that are absolutely free!!! Makes my husband happy when I am able to give things that don't cost anything to make.

On a completely different note, I want you all to head over to Craft Projects and take a little survey! It's for craft bloggers and it literally takes 5 minutes to do and it will be fun to see the results of the survey and see where all the bloggers are from and how many are in the same category! I don't know about you, but I always like to see survey results on things like this. I think it's fun! So go over and do it! If you do take the survey, leave me a comment and there might be a little GIVEAWAY that comes out of it!
