Flower Boots–a new pattern by Big Little

DSC_0047DSC_0049DSC_0051

I’ve recently tested another pattern for Lisa of Big Little. This time it was Lisa’s beautifully cosy Flower boots pattern (available in both Baby and Children-Youth sizes). The size I made was children’s size 8 (for Isabelle) in grey wool with Liberty of London lining. The sole is a black swede and they have elastic around the back of the ankle to stay on little wiggly feet.

The Baby sized pattern includes 5 sizes from 0-3 months through to 12-18+ months and the Children-Youth sized pattern includes 12 (!) sizes; Children's sizes 6-13 and Youth 1-4. Both of these patterns are currently 30% off at the special price of $5 (USD) each for a limited time, so get in quick!

These are a pretty easy sew and as always Lisa does a great job of simplifying each step with her clear instructions. I enjoyed making the flowers especially and have plans to embellish a few other things with them – maybe I’ll make the girls some hair clips, brooches with them. My flowers look a little different than Lisa’s and some of the other testers, I think because I used a very lightweight wool. I still like them, but next time I make this pattern I think I’ll try a thicker wool! Good thing I have a few woollen blankets to recycle!

Thanks Lisa, for producing another quality sewing pattern!

oh the boots are so gorgeous! Love the Liberty on the inside, such a fun add of colour (and a little sneaky hehe).

Jenny I'm desperately trying to get a hold of a wool product to use for blankets etc to no avail in Australia. Can you suggest a product? Martina
