Made these for a friend a couple years ago as a super last minute baby present, I didn't know she was even pregnant until she told me she had the baby so I didn't have much time.

They were super easy, the whole lot took me maybe an hour or 2 to finish. The booties I used a 3-seam pattern I found here http://www.newconceptions.com/patpdf/Footiespdf.pdf and the scratch mittens (I think that's what they're called, those little mittens so newborns don't scratch up their faces) I just kinda winged it. I think I trace a drinking glass for the size and just added elastic to the wrist.

Everything's linned with teddy bear flannel just because I had a ton of it on hand. One of the sets is made out of that same flannel. The rest are made with fat quarters. Turns out one fat quarter makes 2 sets of booties and 2 sets of mittens, which was awsome cuz that means I could use a few different fabrics and still keep it cheap and not have to wait in line to get fabric cut.

Ok on to pictures, lets see if I can get this new photo loader thingy to work....

Black and white checkerd

green with skull and crossbones

this one's kind of a frogs and flowers spring time kinda thing, its a little less boy-ish than the others, but i figure frogs always work for boys

and here's the teddy bears which i call prison bears because they're all wearing striped shirts and i absolutely hate this fabric but that may just be because i've had to stare at the bolt of it sitting in the closet for so long. I originally only used it as a tester but threw it in cuz it turned out good and she ended up liking it so it may be just me that has a thing against the prison bears.

Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome.

Those are nice. I like the fabric you used, in fact I have to confess preferring the prison bears over the black and white  Roll Eyes
But they are all l lovely and well done to you for getting them done so quickly.  Thanks for the link to the pattern.

Thanks! Like I said, I think the only reason I hate the prison bears is cuz I've had so much of that fabric sitting there for so long  Tongue The funny thing is I dont even know where it came from in the first place.
