Sweet Booties!: And Blankets, Bonnets, Bibs & More by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader. Lark Books; Spi edition (January 6, 2009).

Sweet booties is filled with sweet little sewing projects for baby from felt booties (in fact there are heaps of bootie projects), hats (I am not really into those baby headbands but there are those too), and I love the baby elf sleep hats, there are bibs galore (lines, plush, quilted, etc), and some really cute toys – rattle birds that tie onto the side of the cot, soft blocks, yoyo above the cot mobile. A few items of clothing – such as nappy covers, bloomers and pyjamas, and playmats and quilt covers finish it up.

While this book sure has a few really cute and useful projects, I was a bit disappointed in the instructions and illustrations – the projects seem to be beginner type simple sewing projects but without the extensive instructions that a beginner sewing book needs.
