Announcing 3-in-1 Felted Baby Booties Pattern

I can't tell you how excited I am that this cute little pattern is finally ready for launch! After months of working and reworking, weeks of testers and more changes, I finally have my 3-in-1 Felted Baby Booties pattern up on Ravelry, Etsy, and here in my sidebar!

Here's the info:

A perfect gift for the special little ones in your life, these felted booties will make a perfect heirloom to hold on to for years to come. Guaranteed to be the show stopper at your next baby shower. Great alone or with the French Press Felted Slippers as a "Mommy & Me" gift!

The pattern comes with two sizes (0-6 months, 6-12 months) and three styles (mary jane, t-strap, and unisex). Pattern involves increasing, decreasing, and knit stitches and is appropriate for an advanced beginner.

Materials needed:

Under 70 yards of worsted weight, feltable yarn

Size US 11(8 metric) needles

Darning Needle

Stitch Holder

Pillow Case for felting


Waste yarn

Needle and thread

If you have any questions, ask away! I will be answering questions posted here and on the French Press Knits Group forums on Ravelry.

New Pattern and Free Yarn

Now that I have your attention...

This week, I am hosting a giveaway on The giveaway will feature 3 lucky winners who will receive my new 3-in-1 Felted Baby Bootie pattern along with yarn in their choice of color.

The new pattern features 3 felted bootie designs- Mary Jane, T-Strap, and Unisex Booties- all guaranteed to be the next baby shower show-stopper!

By now you may be asking, "Where can I find the pattern for these adorable little booties?". That's the fun part... it's not quite finished, but now I have a deadline. The contest runs all week, and ends Sunday (4/25/10). Winners will be announced Monday, which is when the pattern should (... hopefully... better) be released. Looks like I have some work to do!

In the meantime, stop by Yarn On the House for your chance to win.

In Absence

The least I can do is explain what I have been up to this week. The basement is almost finished. The problem is, I'm learning that "almost finished" can be a very long process.

Also, I am working hard to launch my baby bootie pattern. Since we're now approaching summer, I figure it's a good time for some baby knits. The felted baby booties were originally a knitted item I sold in my Etsy shop. Designing something to make myself and writing a pattern for others to use are completely different things, so this process is also taking a bit of time.

What's keeping you busy these days? Any big projects on your plate?
