Love these booties, they look great! Sarah did a great job and the turn around time was phenomenal! I'd recommend her to anyone! :)
I've been making and selling baby booties since I was in high school, that would be what, 2 years ago? ;) I crochet to relieve social anxiety, but it also gives me the opportunity to earn a little extra money (and who doesn't need that?) and create things that make people happy. I've added dishcloths and dish scrubbers to the mix. They were the original products that I started selling at the Cache Valley Gardeners' Market.
Here's the story behind the dishcloths. I was always looking for unusual yarn, and I was pregnant with my third child and wanted to make him a blanket. I found a yarn called FoxFibre that was a naturally colored organic cotton. I spent my entire allowance on it, and made him a blanket, but there was a whole lot left and I didn't know what to do with it. I thought people at the Gardeners' Market might be interested in stuff made from it, so I made dishcloths and oven mitts. I opened a booth at the market and the dishcloths sold, so I made some more. When I sold out of certain colors, people asked for more. I had already made back my allowance money, so I bought some more yarn and made more. By September of that year I realized that I was in business, and made it official. I named my business "Curious Workmanship" after a verse from the Book of Mormon, Ether 10:27, "And they did work all manner of work of exceedingly curious workmanship."
Since then, Curious Workmanship has sold whatever it's pleased me to make, including hats, tie-dye, and scarves as well as the baby booties and dishcloths that are my bread and butter. I had to shut down the shop in early 2014 as I was going through a divorce and a move. But I'm back, and I'm ready to fill those orders! ...that is, until school starts again.
I teach 12th grade concurrent enrollment math classes for Denver Public Schools through Community College of Aurora and University of Colorado Denver. There's nothing cuter than baby toes though!
BOOTIE SIZING: It is a good idea to measure your baby's feet to determine size. Bootie size measurements are given in the item description. If your baby's foot length is within 1/4" of the length of the bootie, order the next larger size. The "month" sizes are only approximate; babies' feet vary in size by quite a bit. Some 6 month olds will fit into the 18 month size booties, and some 18 month olds will fit into the 6 month size booties.
Size Sole length Month size Approx. U.S. shoe size
X-Small 3 1/2" 3 mo. 2
Small 4" 6 mo. 3
Medium 4 1/2" 12 mo. 4
Large 5" 18 mo. 5
ORDER SUBSTITUTIONS: I love to do custom work and I can make just about any pair of booties within a day. However, if you want a pair of booties that isn't currently listed in my shop, please do not order some other pair of booties and put in the note to seller that you want a completely different pair of booties. Please convo me with your request so that I can make a reserved listing just for you! Requesting substitutions delays your order because I have to contact you to verify the substitution.
