Monster Booties!

Hello, and Happy Halloween!

Are you ready for Halloween?

I think I am as ready as I am going to be. :o)

I didn't get my wreath done, but I did get all my Halloween goodies sent to the nieces and nephews.


I love making goodie bags!

It gives me a perfect excuse to browse all of those fun Walmart and Target aisles. :o)

Anyway, while I was making these I came to the realization that when it comes to goodie bags the Wee Baby Caleb often gets jipped.

I felt bad about this because even though he might not remember that he got jipped...I will.

So, I decided that he needed something for Halloween too.

Now, this was one of those out of the blue kind of thoughts that just kind of materialized into...

Monster Booties!

Cute, huh!

They were pretty simple to make too.

I started with THIS free Bootie Pattern and Tutorial created by Dorothy of Come What May, and Loving It.

First, I cut out my pattern pieces.

Then, I used a piece of junk mail to cut some triangle toes, and taped them on to the Bootie Sole.

I turned the Bootie Sole upside down...

And lined up the Bootie Top with the Bootie Sole.

Then, I added some more triangle toes to the Bootie Top making sure they all lined up.

After adding all the toes your pattern pieces should look like this.

Now, just cut out your fabric, and follow Dorothy's Tutorial.

Quick Note: I didn't add a non-slip sole to my booties, but you could if you wanted to.

Anyway, it was actually a really quick sew, and I was so happy with how they turned out.

Now, I just hope the Wee Baby Caleb likes them :o)

Happy Wednesday, and Happy Halloween!  

Pin It!
