One day, for fun, I decided to combine lace, ruffles, a texture pattern and bobbles all in a single pattern…and it worked! The result is an adorable little set which will keep a baby’s extremities warm, while looking making them look absolutely darling at the same time. Complete your set with these beautiful textured booties, finished off with ribbon detail.
