cable me softly
Cable Me Softly - by Alexa Ludeman
The previously undiscovered secret to the perfect baby bootie now revealed!
Alexa’s daughter Hunter has been rambling around, getting into all manner of trouble, and has NEVER LOST A BOOTIE. She’s no Cinderella! (I’m going to assume she has an earlier bedtime, but that she too will one day rule the ball).
These booties are adorable, quick, and immanently practical if your expecting or have friends with wee ones. They’re not complicated, but the cabled cuff adds that rustic west coast style that every baby requires!
