When you have a new little baby in the family, all you want to do is swaddle them in the coziest things you possibly can. These Knit Faux Shearling Baby Booties are the softest, snuggliest baby booties you'll ever make for the little one. Perfect for shielding sensitive skin when temperatures start to drop, these baby booties will make your little one feel like they're sleeping at home in their cozy crib even when they're out on a walk or visiting Grandma and Grandpa's house. We love the colors used in this pattern, but think it would be equally as adorable in pink, blue, or yellow.
