Baby Booties : Free Pattern

I remember sometime ago, I've promised to share this pattern with you... my post  backdated to June 2010...wow that's really long!! Anyway better late than never...right.  Basically I thought I would just like to share the link to the similar pattern which I came across in the Internet...but I just couldn't find  it.  So what I did, I just write the pattern by myself by  referring to the booties that I've made for my niece.

Simple Baby Booties pattern

Materials:
Yarn
Steel Hook no. 5(Tulip)
ch 4, slst to make a circle
Rd 1 : ch 3, 9 dc into the circle (10 dc),
Rd 2 : ch 3, dc into same st, 2 dc into each st around (22 dc)
Rd 3 -6 : ch 3, 1 dc into each st around
Rd 4 : ch 3, dc into next 18 st, leaving 5 unworked. ch 3, turn and work 18 dc back and forth until the sole is as long as the baby’s foot (you have to measure the baby sole).
Seam up at the back together, and then work about 2 rounds of single crochet around the edge and decreasing at each of the corners

That’s it! You’re DONE!! You can make a complete pair in less than an hour. The best part is on how you want to decorate your baby booties. I attached here what I’ve did to my baby booties. For boys I decorate with blue pompom (using pompom basically quite universal, it can be for girls too…you can play with the color) and for my girl version I decorate with a flower.

 


Ok... that’s about it for today. If you have any questions on the pattern please leave them in the comment and I'll try to answer them in that post! :)

If you use any of my patterns, I would appreciate it if you could link to my blog. I also LOVE to see and share yours on my blog ... so let me know;)

Thanks for reading...and ENJOY your weekend…

Patchwork Business Card Holder : Tutorial


I used scraps fabric to sew this patchwork business card holder. You don’t need to have a lot of fabric for this pattern.

what you'll need:
exterior fabric
fabric for lining
batting (optional)
scissors
thread
bias tape


1. Cut fabrics into 2.5cm x 6.5cm for 24 pieces


2. Sew 3 pieces together and make a square of 8 blocks. Iron press seam in one direction.


3. Arrange each square alternately.  Sew all the square together. Sew the lining with batting in the middle and start quilting.  Trim the corner of one side(this side will be the folder).

4. Start binding at the lower side first(I forgot to snap photo of this step), then bind the other areas.


5. Fold together and handsew at both side.



9. Sew with snap fastener ... and your card holder is ready.



10. You may also embellish it with flower or other closure such as Velcro, button etc. Mine I embellish with crochet flower with button in the middle.

Patchwork Tote Bag

This is my latest work during the weekend.  A patchwork tote bag for myself... Originally the pattern was from Our Cozy Nest   The different between the original pattern was mine sewn without batting and using ribbon in replace of fabric as the tie on front(which  I've omitted too..) 
At the same time, I also give a try to sew a patchwork business card holder from the same fabric.  I am very much love it when my work completed...and of course this is also for my own use. Sewing this business card holder is really easy.  Maybe I shall share the tutorial with you in one of this day.
