    I feel so stupid! I love these booties and would love to make some, but I am having so much problems trying to figure out the directions. Since I seem to be the only one who is having this problem then I must assume it is me and not the directions. Can anyone help? I have no idea how to figure it out. Even asked my husband to look at the directions and he spent an hour looking and reading and he gave up also. What am I not seeing, or doing?

    I made a pare and lined them with flannel. It made them a little thinker of course, but softer, I loved this project. I am trying to make the patter bigger, the grown ups want a pair now too.

    Wonderful, thank you for sharing "outofthebox". I had a problem with the webbing tape. I tried 2 different kinds and the felt still would not stick together. What do you use? I ended up stitching everything together so it didn't matter too much in the end. The booties ended up adorable :)

    I made this as part of the baby shower cake that I made for a friend. They loved it!
    So cute and easy to make... in fondant! Thanks for sharing the template and the article of the baby bootie! Keep up the great work!

    I made these right after the show aired. I even replayed my TIVO over and over to be sure I was getting it right. The booties turned out amazing! I gave them to my brother and sister inlaw for their new baby boy, Caedmon and they loved them! A big hit --very easy to make, and original.
