A Few Pattern Testers Needed!

I have gotten loads of requests for the pattern to the baby boots I made for Eleanor.  I have learned a lot of things trying to make this pattern.  Mainly, that pattern writing is hard!  Really hard.  I have also learned that these booties are really best for small babies.  I had dreams of making the pattern all the way up to 18-24 months, but the way they are designed is best for little wee ones.  So, I have a pattern for 0-3 and 3-6 months done.  I think that is all I am going to attempt.

I need some pattern testers!  I have tested them on Eleanor, but she is just one baby and before I list a pattern for sale I want to ensure that I have made it easy to understand and that the shoes are totally wearable and comfy for lots of different babies 🙂

I still need to work out a few kinks and make a final draft, this week should be plenty of time.  If you are interested in receiving the pattern for free in return of your mad sewing skills (you can be a beginner sewer too!  I want to make sure it is easy enough to follow for a beginner) and feedback, please contact me at sewshesews [at] gmail dot {com}.  I will be taking the first 5 people that contact me.  I really want testers that have a baby or know someone with a baby that can try them out for me.  I also need people who are able to sew the shoes within 2 weeks of receiving the pattern.  Thanks! 🙂

Have a great night!

    I would love to be a pattern tester for you. We’ve got babies coming…

    Oh my gosh. I wish I was more secure in my sewing skills. I know I could do them with a lot of swearing knowing me but they probably wouldn’t be anything you would want to show. lol I have attempted newborn baby shoes in the past and never was able to finish them because they were so tiny. It is a shame I don’t feel better because I have a 4 week old Grandson right now and we have a new Granddaughter coming in February. (I just found out this next one will be a girl this morning yay)

    They are just adorable though and OH MY GOSH, your little model is just too cute. I want to bring her to my house for about a week. You need rest right? 🙂 She’s so cute.

    O please let me be a tester! These are sooo adorable! I don’t have a little one of my own, but my adopted daughter (my daughter’s best friend) is going to give birth any day now!!! This would be sooo cool!
    Thanks for considering me!

    Eleanor is soooo cute. Seems she is getting used to model. Even a little smile.. 🙂 Lovely pattern. Unfortunately I have no babies anymore. I would buy the pattern though. Veerle

    Oooo… these are adorable! I might be able to help test out your pattern. My wee one is 11mos. old and wears a size 12-18mos. size shoe. You mentioned it’s best for little ones, but if it’ll work for bigger babes, I’m more than happy to help! 🙂

    Wow I didn’t realize you made the pattern! These are awesome! Kind of sad they aren’t makeable for 18-24m. If you ever do decide to make a pattern for that size I’d love to try it out for my niece! 🙂

    Naw they are so adorable! I don’t think my sewing skills are up to it at this stage, but I wanted to tell you how sweet they are. 🙂
