Neat Little Feet Baby Booties

 
Neat Little Feet


One of my friends asked me if I would be able to find time to knit a couple of pairs of premature baby booties in a hurry! She wanted to gift them to a new mum who has just had tiny twins.

The new mum's request was  "No fuss, no frills, no ribbons, no bows, no buttons - just plain simple booties."

I hope these fit the brief! They are now wrapped up ready for my friend to collect tomorrow.
