Goober Pea Boots -- Pattern Review

Goober Pea Boots

This is a pattern review for these adorable baby booties!!!!  The pattern was given to me, but the opinions are all my own.  Here is my Craftsy affiliate link if you're interested in the pattern.

Sometimes just picking out your fabric can be the hardest part, but this time I knew exactly what I wanted to use.  I've been hording this bit of fluffy pink minky for a while, waiting for the perfect project, and I found it.  I also made a few accessories, but I'll post about them another time.

First things first just cut everything out, I went with the batting as that was the recommended choice.  It gets caught into the seams and stays put nicely.  I forgot just how messing cutting minky can be...don't breath too deeply ahhaha.

The pattern has 3 sizes; 03-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months.  Keep in mind your fabric choices will change the fit a bit.   A fluffy minky like I used, will take up a bit more room, and you'll have a slightly smaller boot then if you had used flannel or cotton as the lining, just keep that in mind.

It looks rather complicated when you read through the pattern, but after a quick read through just get started.  If you follow each step in order, it will come together nicely, don't try to overthink it. 

The instructions are short and clearly written, the pictures are really where it's at.  I'm a visual learner so I appreciated how clear all the photo instructions are.

It comes together very quickly, and before long it starts looking like a boot. This is the top part, now for the soles.  I used the non-reversible instructions since I used the non-skid slipper fabric for the soles. 

Don't these look so cozy!!!!!  Now I just get to trim the seams and turn them out!!!!  Wow that was fast.  What a fun project.  Now I want to make more of them, but I'll have to check on the sizing first!!!
