MJ Booties by Tina Givens

Something to come soon... When I was pregnant with my twins... I made all sorts of things for them including hats and booties; their blankets and clothes... I knew they were going to be somewhat premature... (they were 2 months early) so I knew they'd be small... and they were, whew. They're now 5 and tall (they are both going to be tall people and tower over little me)... and when ever I see little booties I go crazy. Now I create lovely patterns for babies everywhere, not just for mine! I even have a series of Bootie stationery... very popular booties for birth announcements and notecards... Anyway I digress....
These little gems, I call MJ Booties (Ahhh that would be Mary-Jane Booties)... The pattern is easy and my objective was to make them without looking home-made... they are soft and even have a foundation in the sole for shape. The fabric here is from new Annabella in Rachael colorways, the black and white fabric is called VENICE. I love it with the Bliss in its pinks and dark chocolates (used as the lining), and the sole (which you unfortunately can't see, is an acqua blue colorway for a new fabric called Mila. This pattern is going to be available for sale shortly. Debuting in Portland Oregon in May. Wait 'til you see the matching, adorable brimmed sun hat for babies. This aint your average baby hat people....

Happy Spring , TG

If you are planning a wedding, one of the biggest decisions you
will make is where to have it. The most effective way to begin preventative pest control is to eliminate the food
source. If you keep the bait fresh and plentiful year round
the population will be reduced and even effect the breeding cycle which is your number one goal.
