I have a lot of trouble getting socks or shoes to stay on Roman’s feet. His legs are always moving and his shoes get kicked off in the process. I have a knitted bootie pattern that is pretty good, but knitting can be pretty time consuming, even for little booties.
I came across this pattern for some sewn polar fleece baby booties, so I thought I’d give them a go. They only took about 20 mins to whip up and are pretty cute. Roman still kicks them off with a little effort, but they put in a good fight to stay on.
I made the small size and they still have a bit of growing room left in them and Roman is almost 11 months. I used non-slip shelf liner as I had a piece lying around, but it is peeling a bit, so if I make more, I’d definitely get the non-skid fabric.
