The second of presents I made for my new goddaughter Maxine is a cute pair of fringe booties. I actually adore fringes as they can make any outfit look very gypsy. And fringes are very much in fashion. You'll find them from Zara to Gucci, for young and old. The pattern and tutorial I used was from Shwin and Shwin . The tutorial comes with a free PDF pattern and is well explained.
I used a dark purple imitation leather for the outside and lined the boots with a matching cotton with a bird print.
The boots don't quite fit yet but I'm sure that in a year or so Maxine will look absolutely adorable!
2 weeks ago I became the proud new godmother of a baby girl named Maxine... I am very excited because I do admit that sewing for little girls can be more exciting than for little boys. It's not that you can't find nice patterns out there for boys, it's just that there is so much more variety in fabrics, patterns and notions that makes it so much more exciting. You also can't ignore the fact that girls appreciate a nice dress so much more than boys like a new pair of pants... I made Maxine a variety of presents of which I will present the first one today... As my cousin, who is Maxine's mum was still looking for some decorations for her bedroom I made a a small pink detail wall weaving. I figured it wasn't too baby-like so she could probably keep it on her wall until she's well in her teens.
Hopefully this will bring the finishing touch to the little one's room...
