Bitty Booties, take two

As soon as I finished the first pair of Bitty Booties, I knew I wanted to make another pair. This time, I used bits of a turquoise wool sweater whose sleeves I'd used to make a pair of wool "longies." So now she'll have shoes to match her pants. I wasn't happy with how wonky my first pair's edges were, so this time, I decided to use top stitching and pinking shears rather than sewing and turning. I'm much happier with how they came out, although clearly, I need a new pair of pinking shears! I will definitely be making more of these, and can't wait for the next baby shower so I can give some as a gift!
