Knockoff Baby Booties with Snaps

I have always had summer babies (I guess one was early fall) but it's always pretty warm. This new baby coming in January requires warmer footwear. 

I had seen these baby booties on a friend's child and LOVED that they stayed on her feet so well. I found them on Amazon, but I couldn't imagine paying that much for one pair.

After some research, I found a pattern that was suitable for making the same thing! I will say that they aren't completely the same (mine might be a little more round) but they seem like they will stay on baby feet better than socks alone! 

There is some elastic at the back to help keep them snug. 

I have no idea what size they are for as it was not marked, but hopefully they will cinch up enough to stay on many sizes.

Footed Newborn Pants, Bandana Bibs, Baby Leggings

I used the tutorial from here to make these newborn sized baby pants (from an old t-shirt). And I had to make a matching bandana bib, too! Our new baby will need new bibs, some were completely worn out and terribly stained!

Baby Hats

I love making baby hats. (You can search for "hats" on this site to see others I have made.) 

I made this in case the baby is a girl. I love bow hats.

Tons of Baby Hats.

I go through phases. Sometimes I sew. Sometimes I crochet. Sometimes I do both. Or neither. 

I'm going through a crocheting phase. I made a ton of hats for our church to donate to the newborns at the hospital. 31 total. So far. 

I did sew a few of them. Someone had given me a lot of yarn. And I just started crocheting.

Projects Lately.

I haven't felt like doing much lately! I have been sewing on and off. 
We're expecting a new baby end of January/early February (hopefully not that late). I have done a few projects over the course of the past few months, but most of my time has been devoted to homeschooling my boys (we are on WEEK 9 already, the year is flying), stuff around the house (does the laundry never end?), and just trying to keep up with everyday stuff. 

I did make two new pillow covers for our couch. I don't know that the men in my house appreciate them. The front two longer pillows are new. I covered two pillows my mom had given me. My husband knows not to comment on how the fabrics don't match. I'm not sure I like them. But for now, they are fine.
