To celebrate an upcoming event that I am speaking at Create, I have been working on a new pattern which I have made available here for free.
I am selling these booties and beanies at this event. I have been slightly obsessed with crochet lately.
There are so many babies around me at the moment any that are left over will not go to waste.
I hope you enjoy and I’d love you to take a photo and post the booties on social media with the hashtag #inspire14 so I can see your amazing creations.
