This pattern was designed to make quick, yet cute baby booties to help with my son's eagle project for boy scouts. He is assembling what are called baby kits for mothers in need. Items that he needs to collect are receiving blankets, day gowns, socks, booties, cloth diapers (not prefolded) diaper pins, and hypoallgenic soap (Ivory). His goal for this project is to make 100 kits. All items included in these kits have to be brand new.
In order to help him purchase these items I am selling this pattern at $3, the sale of just 7 of these patterns will pay for one kit. He will happily accept donations of items, materials for making items, or money. Please contact me if you would like to help.
