This is my 1st attempt at making something like baby booties, and I must say it turned out fabulously...
I made them for the son of the photographer I've worked with for well over 5 years now. I knew exactly what to reach for when I heard that they were having a boy! She was kind enough to post a photo of my handy work on our little model.
I used the following site as a guide for hat sizing: http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html
And did my best to mimic the following for the baby shoes: http://liscrafts.com/2009/01/little-button-loafers/
