Baby Shoes
Japanese Alligators Baby Booties by Jennifer, Jennifer Ladd

Jennifer, one of our newest board members, makes some pretty cute baby shoes. She writes, “The baby booties were made with a fat quarter of Japanese fabric. They are lined with a soft white flannel. They look so cute on a baby’s little feet, and I love that they are gender-neutral.”

    I LOVE these! I have tried making similar booties a few times for my little 3-month old girlie and I love them. And I love that this month is fat quarter month. My husband is still a student so I have a pretty strict budget for crafty love… When I spy a new or fun fabric print I usually can’t afford to get a lot of it… so I settle for a fat quarter and use it in a few projects, love fat quarters, they’re my best friends!!

  168. Devon says:

    I have always loved fat quarters, but I have never bought them because I wasn’t sure what you could do with them, as I don’t quilt. I think next time I am at my fabric store I will buy a couple fq’s to make these baby booties for shower gifts.

    Oh my, I need that Gator fabric. My son’s room is decorated with orange and blue for the University of Florida Gators! I am planning a Trip to Ireland quilt for his big boy bed and some orange fat quarters would be a big start! It’s like this post was written for me.
    Oh, and on a side note, one of my best friends from college is having a baby soon, and if I were to ship her those baby booties in gator fabric, she’d be ecstatic! I mean it’s like this post was so totally written for me! I’m downloading instructions as I type!

  196. Thanks for your kind comments everyone! I use my own pattern for those booties and I haven’t made a tutorial for them, yet. It’s on my ever-growing “to-do” list for when my daughter gets a bit older and I get some more time back to myself (will that ever happen?!?). For now, i just sell the finished product in my shop.
    The other links we posted have some nice tutorials, though. Be sure to check those out!

    Cute! I love the idea of lining them with flannel.

  198. AndreaLea says:

    I love these shoes! And how sweet in orange.

  199. Lovely!
    Here is a free pattern for making reversible baby shoes (tried and adopted!) : http://www.maked.ca/tutorials.html

    I love orange and I love baby booties. Feet are the cutest parts on a baby. Reading all about fat quarters is making me want to start a quilt. The last quilt I made must have been 5 or 6 years ago. I would love to start one for a preschool fundraiser. Is there a book out there all about sewing with fat quarters?
