I’ve been spending most of my spare time making bootie favors for my nephew Mike and his wife Stephanie’s baby shower. This time they were blue for the little boy they are expecting this spring. This was the first batch.
I made a total of 40. I couldn’t find the same kind of bows I used on the 60 pink ones I made two years ago, but Amazon finally came to my rescue. There was no pearl in the center, but looked more masculine. I thought about cutting off the tails to look like a bow tie, but I ran out of time.
The candy I had inside were little candy coated balls of carob and chocolate. I had to devise a system to fill the netting in a bowl because those little suckers traveled fast and rolled everywhere if I didn’t contain them.
All 40 finished and ready to go.
The shower was held this past Sunday at a restaurant. Of course, it snowed all day Saturday and Sunday. But it was still a big success for those who braved the storm. Here are the booties on one of the tables.
I told the family I hoped it would be a while before there were any more baby showers and booties.
I know many of you have done fairs. Have you done any special projects lately?
