More Baby and Big Sister Gifts- Part 2

Finished baby booties (bottoms) with plastic resist.

 


Felted booties (tops).

 


Finished gift with (tightly) sewn on felt balls.

 


Infant crown and booties plus big sister crown.

 


The infant crown came out a bit large after felting...

...so I trimmed it and sewed it back together to make the proper size.

The big girl crown tips were still a little floppy after felting (too few layers!)...

...so I folded up each point, and sewed a large "X" on each with embroidery thread.

For the booties, I used a resist pattern from "Felting for Baby" by Saori Yamazaki...

...using blue pre-felt to delineate the bootie bottoms.

I'm still a bit uncertain about the safety of using felted balls as a decoration...

...even though I followed the directions in this book.

I'm going to suggest to the Mama that she should snip them off when the baby gets a bit 'grabbier'...

...just to be certain that she doesn't manage to pry one off and choke on it.

Thanks, girls! Riet-You're not being cruel at all, only plain-speaking. I will let her Mama see how cute they are with the balls, but then we'll snip them off!
