After some tweaking, they look a bit different now when I make them, but I'll tell that story another time.

Where my inspiration comes from
I would like to share what my inspiration was for this venture. I'm a new mom, and my beautiful daughter Saoirse (pronounced SEER-SHA) was born on June 1, 2010. As a summer baby, she spent most of her time in a diaper and a Onesie. As the weather got colder, I reached for the socks. She hated them, and kept pulling or wiggling them off her feet. As is typical in New England, the temperature was dropping fast, and I wanted something to put on her feet that was warmer than socks, and that she couldn't pull of on her own. So, being a "crafty" sort, I grabbed some scrap fleece from her halloween costume, and cut out a pair of "shoes." I sewed them up by hand with some quilting thread and put them on her feet. I took one look and said to my self, "these are the ugliest booties I have ever seen." But, I loved them. And so did Saoirse. Here are some photos of the original pair.
