How to Make Your Own Starting Points Baby Booties

It seems that every other project of mine lately seems to be yet another baby project! I’ve had everything from baby blankets to tiny sweaters and hats on my needles over the last few months and I find myself constantly on the look out for quick projects that I can whip up. So, it was to my delight when I came across these super-adorable Starting Points Baby Booties! These faux suede booties are not only lined
with a super soft sherpa fleece to keep your little one’s feet toasty
warm, but the cuff on the inside of the booties holds a mesh tape that can
be directly knit or crocheted into – simply brilliant!

If you haven’t seen these before, they are truly the go-to solution for last-minute gifts (especially for all of the baby showers that I have been attending lately). And to show you just how easy-peasy these baby booties are to work up, we’ve create a step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to attach the cuffs into the mesh lining and voila, you’ve got a super-cute gift that looks fancy and impressive!

Watch the tutorial to see just how easy these Starting Points Baby Booties are to make!

Both knit and crochet instructions are included with the Starting Points Baby Booties, and only use up a small amount of worsted weight yarn. For my little baby booties, I used Chroma Worsted in Gossip and it took me no time at all. I followed along for the knit instructions, which have you working a simple k2, p2 ribbing for the cuff for a few inches. Then, you bind off and all you have left to do is sew your cuff into place on the hidden mesh lining inside the booties. I love this idea so much because it is easy, it lets me use up my random scraps of yarn (I knew I saved those scraps for a reason!), and you get a pair of baby booties in the end without every having to turn a heel or decrease for the toes.
