DIY: Striped Baby Booties

When one of my best friends is expecting a baby girl, of course I have to knit her something!! These baby booties turned out to be adorable, even if they are a little too big for her to wear for awhile :) Knitting them was super easy and only used a small amount of leftover yarn. I'm not a fan of seaming my knits together, and this one was a battle!! I only added to the stress by waiting to sew them together the night before the baby shower! I think my friend and her hubby liked them though, and that's all that matters!

The pattern I used can be found at Handmade by Calista. As for yarn, my mom and I found colors we liked out of her awesomely massive stash, so I can't remember the brand, but it was worsted weight.
