With Mother's Day on the horizon many of us have thoughts turned to motherly things such a nurturing, kindness and other qualities that we usually associate with mothering. It just so happens that someone that I work with is about to become a new mother. In honor of her up and coming new status of "Mom" I tatted her some baby booties!
Bottom of the baby bootie.
I hope she likes them!
More than that...I hope they fit the baby!
They are kind of funny shaped baby booties.
I used a vintage Workbasket Magazine pattern from
March 1969. I revised the pattern a bit by crawling
out of rounds with a split ring or a split chain here and there
to reduce the number of cut and ties...thereby reducing
the number of ends to hide. Wow, that split-chain
sure comes in handy!
I used white Opera brand cotton crochet thread
size 30. I liked tatting with it. When I had to open
up a ring or two in order to fix a mistake it opened
smoothly with this thread for me.
