Shake Your Bootee!

Here we are at Cornerstones, resting. Seriously resting. But I did pack a bag of sewing bits, and this book


I particularly wanted to make some of these cute little baby bootees.


So whilst Bob was watching the Gadget Show, I went and cut out some pieces, then sat and sewed. Four pairs thus far!


The author, Claire Youngs suggests having the cuff ‘up’ or ‘down’


I think I like ‘ down’ best. She gives lots of helpful suggestions for personalising, and ideas for some Scandinavian-style motifs to embroider. I had lots of fun as you can see…

It is a bright sunny morning and Bob is cooking breakfast –and after that we are going out for some fresh air and Norfolk sunshine! I shall not be wearing an outfit like this!


  1. They are adorable, hope you have a restful time

  2. I love the slippers, am going to point them out to my friend who is waiting for her first grandchild!

  3. The booties are adorable and I love the embroidery

  4. I was going to say those booties are adorable, but everyone else beat me to the punch. They really are, though!
