We can’t help it. No matter how silly or impractical it is, we just want to make things to put on babies’ feet. I made these cute little boots in a futile maternal attempt to to keep my daughter’s toes warmer as she starts scooting around the apartment. Try a pair! You’ll like them. After all, they’re little, fast, and adorable – just like her.
