When I found out that we were expecting a baby GIRL this time, in mid November, I set to Pinterest to find all of the cutest DIY frills and lace projects that I could pin!
I saw these sweet little baby girl boots and knew that I HAD TO HAVE THEM!!
The full site for the original pattern can be found here.
Of course I clicked through to the link that went to the website with the pattern and it was FA REE (that should be said like the British roommate on Bridesmaids that gets the tequila worm tattoo for FA REE!). The only problem... I hadn't the slightest idea how to crochet.
That was not going to stop me! I had YouTube on my side!
So... I went to the local JoAnns or Walmart or Hobby Lobby or something and picked up my supplies.
Easy peasy! I figured, I was investing very little, so if I failed miserably, my loss would be minimal.
In the mean time, I had been telling a couple of people that I saw these mostadorablehadtohavethemboots and that I was going to attempt to make them via YouTube and the pattern that Ashlee so conveniently provided for me. Each time I shared my new goal, the response I got was less than favorable. First, my husband tells me... why don't you ask my cousins, they are both really good at crochet... umm... because I WANT to do it! Then my mom says - too bad Gram's thumb is hurt, because I am SURE she can make them... wait... was she implying that I CANNOT?
The first go was... hmmm... interesting. I cannot find the pictures, but ... lets just say it has become a humorous beret for our cat!
Then, I spent a little more time getting familiar with the crochet hooks, I bought nice soft baby yarn and was patient and concentrated REALLY REALLY hard!
...a pair of acceptable (who am I kidding I think they are darned FANTASTIC) boots that our little Ladybird will get to don come November!!
