Baby Booties

I have been busily sewing Christmas presents but I can't put any pictures up yet because I want these presents to be a surprise! So... pictures will come after Christmas. But, one of the girls that works for me, Heather, just had her baby today. She was born at home and I was invited to attend the birth. What a precious, exciting time.

I found a pattern for these adorable booties and had to try my hand at felting, never having done it before. I crocheted them with wool yarn and then just put them into a little cloth bag and threw them into the washing machine with hot water and a little soap (and a pair of jeans to help with the agitation) and voila! Aren't they adorable? I hope they fit!
