There is just something about making a pair of baby booties that excites the soul.

It might be the excitement that there will be a new baby that carries over to thinking about baby booties, that baby booties are just so cute or a mixture of both.

Next comes picking out a pattern. You will want something cute, but also functional.
By functional, I mean, will they be comfortable and stay on the baby's feet without binding or marking the baby's ankle because they are too tight.

You will also need to check sizes. Pattern sizes are different between designers. So check the measurements. Also baby's foot sizes vary.

I have several baby bootie patterns, for sale. The links to the patterns are in the left-hand column of this blog, as are quick links to the pattern tutorials. The first 5 patterns include 5 sizes. They are sized for small preemies and newborn babies up to 12 months or until the baby's foot length reaches 4 inches. Some babies feet reach this length by the time they are 6 or 9 months.

I also have links to a couple baby bootie patterns that are FREE. They are listed under "Free, Baby Related & Charity Patterns".
The big question now is... Where can I find the knit fabric to make these baby booties with?
Well... I carry that too.
I am on a constant search to find "Hard to find" Cotton Knit Fabric in Interlock, Jersey, Rib Knit and Ribbing.
You will find it HERE, along with Ribbon, Elastic and Cording.
If you use my patterns to make baby booties and you would like to share pictures of them... You may post them on Lil' Baby Thangs Flickr photo stream or on Lil' Baby Thangs Facebook page.
