Baby Booties for Olivia

Our baby obsession continues.
Heather was begging to make a pair of baby booties for her teacher.  Her daughter Olivia was born in October.  I had left over quilted material from the ones I made for Svea.

Heather making her first yo-yo.                                                   Finished!!

Heather did ALL of the sewing.  I pinned, coached and got the centering right on the button/yo-yo flower. I also threaded the needle a few times when she let it come undone.  I think it is important to do the frustrating tasks, like needle threading and the important things that insure success, like careful pinning while teaching kids to sew.  It insures success and keeps enthusiasm high.
But she did all of the actual sewing.  She has a good eye, a steady hand,  an amazing  sewest and only 11!
