Hello ladies, hope all is well with you!! :)

I've been looking for a pattern for a particular "similar" looking baby booties, but really do not want to "pay" for a pattern to make 1 pair of booties.. If that makes any sense?

I was hoping anyone knew where I could find a similar pattern that looks like this:

Any help with this would be seriously appreciated. I'm still looking, but starting to get cross eyed from looking and looking and looking... So any help with this would be seriously helpful!

Thanks!!

CJ - I've searched for you and the only ones I can find are either crocheted or knitted. DRATS. How good are you at improvising?

Maybe this will help a bit: http://www.skillsforwildlives.com/2010/02/making-traditional-mukluks/

I found this, http://dorothy-comewhatmayandloveit.blogspot.com/2010/01/bootie-tutorial.html but not entirely sure if this size "medium" would be too big for a new born, but I keep telling myself at least she'll have room to grow into them...?

What do you think?

I just found your link CJ. I would say GO for it. A much better tutorial and those I posted. And, draw the pattern off, scan it and reduce it by say 10% and you can make a couple pair. One for now and one for later.

I's so glad to see you back on-line and being active with us!!!!

Same here, thanks!

I still wish I could find a pattern like the ones above, but beggers can't be choosers.

Thanks for the links, I would try to convert the second link into uggs look-a-like but I am not quite there yet to be able to do that with patterns if that makes sense. lol

Thanks for the pattern though!! :)

Just wanted to post this to let you know, in case anyone else would like to know.

I found this pattern, which if I just take the "1 inch" she adds for the thigh part of the boot it would be perfect. :)
