Cutie Booties

My good friend’s sister is about to have an adorable baby girl and she wanted a little teeny pair of purple booties for the top of the baby shower cake.

I used the Garter Stitch Silk Slipper pattern from Erika Knight’s Simple Knits for Cherished Babies. This is a favorite old standby pattern for me. Its easy, knits up super fast, and the results are fantastic.

I used some Koigu Kersti Crepe Marino in a pale, pale, pale lavander. They seemed a little too plain so I rummaged around in my box of sewing goodies and i found a pretty purple rickrack.

Done! I can’t wait to see how cute they will be on top of that cake!
