Sweet Vintage Wool Bootie

Check out my Ebay for this little sweet bootie

I found a pair of these adorable little wool booties. The vintage colors are soft pink and off white.I wanted to keep the integrate of the color and age, so I carefully dyed the wool for bird to give it just a hint of vintage. I also dyed the wool for the flowers around the pin cushion. The ric rac is a vintage piece. I laced the bootie up with silk ribbon that I also dyed. I made a little hang tag. I made the glitter pins blue to go with the original blue flowers on the top.

If you are interested in this little tin container, I will be giving it away on Monday. It would be so cute to fill with candy kisses and write "MOM" on it. Or a put a little glass jar in it, and put flowers in it.You need to leave me a comment. Have a great weekend!

The estate sale was 2 weeks ago. There was nothing old, so don't be sad. She moved out here 2 years ago the great old stuff was sold before she left Maine!!:(
