Knitted Bunny Baby Booties!

knitted bunny baby bootiesFirst up, congratulations to Lee and Alyson on their sparkly new baby! As a newborn-treat I decided to make a little something for baby Sophie May and, thanks to Leanne over at Knit Me a Cake, found this fantastic knitting pattern for a pair of adorable knitted bunny baby booties. Just look at how cute they are – I wonder if it’s possible to adapt the pattern to make them in a ladies’ size 5….?

The knitting pattern is from Leanne’s blog (scroll down here for the full pattern!) it’s super easy to follow and very quick to make so is great for even the most beginner-ish of beginners. All you need to do is knit 2 main pieces, 2 tails and 4 ears and then stitch them all together. And add a little bunny face. JUST LOOK AT THEIR LITTLE FACES!

Anyway, here are a few photos of my own version – tell me you love them as much as I do! I’ve actually made 3 more pairs since first publishing this post as it’s such an easy pattern to follow and they make a fantastic newborn gift – everyone loves them!

    • Oh wonderful! I definitely recommend making these – they’re a little small and fiddly but knit together super quick and look awesome once they’re finished! Please show me when you finish ๐Ÿ™‚
