Fortune Cookie Baby Booties

August 19, 2011

I was browsing etsy and saw these super awesome fortune cookie baby booties by sushibooties. I remembered saving a kimono baby bootie pattern a few years ago, so I set out to find a pattern to make them myself. Well lo and behold, Della Slowik of sushibooties was featured on the Martha Stewart show, and the website of the segment includes templates, a visual how-to guide, and a video clip of the show.

Instead of using 2 different fleece colors, I used acrylic felt (couldn’t find wool in my spare hour to run to the fabric store) and muslin lining. I also didn’t print the fortune on the material Slowik uses; instead, I just used a fine tip felt pen and some muslin to write my fortunes. I know if I were to wash the booties, this part would fray and the ink would probably run. I wasn’t too serious about quality–I just wanted to get the process down.

My fortunes say, “Become who you are,” and “Love surrounds you.” Slowik packages them in little Chinese take-out containers–brilliant.

I made a Baby Kimono from the Habitual tutorial about 18 months ago for Hannah Claire out of a Pottery Barn Teen pillow I found at a thrift store, which of course, I cannot find because it’s probably packed up in the winter clothes. It’s time to make baby Charlotte her own little kimono so she can sport her fortune cookie baby booties!
