Henry models his new felty rabbit footsies.

9 Jun

These are my latest creation, I really love making little felt feet for babies! I don’t really enjoy making clothes and know that other people can do it much much better than I can but I’m good at making all the extras like blankets and accessories. Hats, mittens and booties that are baby foot shaped and don’t require advanced pattern cutting techniques – they are such simple shapes but require lots of details and hand embroidery to make them special and unique. These are a simple pattern so I can get on with all the fun bits like drawing little faces in embroidery floss and finding nice buttons for the eyes. Thank goodness they don’t require too much three dimensional spacial awareness because that’s when my brain start to throb and you can see me sitting at the sewing machine with my tongue sticking out the corner of my mouth just staring at bits of fabric wondering how to ever turn it in to clothing! These little rabbit numbers are made from 4mm thick brown wool felt with blanket stitched edging in a contrasting thread and button eyes, Henry loves them and is refusing to take them off! Thanks heavens I made a paper pattern.
