The cute mini baby booties are possibly the fastest knitting project in the whole wide world!
Each mini bootie takes around five minutes to knit. They are so tiny and cute!
They are ideal for using up little bits of leftover double knitting yarn and you can make them in any colour.
The sweet little hand knit baby bootie appliqués can then be used to decorate cards and gift tags for use on occasions such as the birth of a new baby or for baby showers.
You could also stick them on journals, photo albums and storage boxes.
If your hobby is card making you would find these mini booties a great addition to your stash of creative supplies.
