Daisy Needle Works Etsy Shop Review

Babies shouldn't wear shoes until they hit their first birthday.  It's important for them to be as barefoot as much as possible while indoors to promote proper foot development.  Although when they are outside it is a smart idea to put booties or socks on them to keep their feet warm, especially in the cold weather.  I will certainly follow this advice when I have my daughter later this year.  I've seen so many adorable booties for newborns and infants that it's hard to resist not wanting them all!

Daisy Needle Works is an Etsy shop ran by owner Anna.  Her shop specializes in crocheted baby booties, headbands, and hats for boys and girls.  Her baby booties seem to be her signature item and I can certainly see why. Not only does Anna crochet each pair of booties by hand, but she crochets the boy booties to look like sneakers complete with laces! How adorable is that? Her talent is surely evident and it makes me wish I knew how to crochet too. For girls, the booties look similar to a pair of flats.  They can be created in the color of your choosing and they have the sweetest little crocheted flower on top.  If you're looking for a baby boy or girl gift, a pair of booties or a hat would make the perfect present.

Since finding out I'm having a girl, I've been going crazy with purchasing items for her.  I'm very girly myself so I'm hoping to pass the pink and flowered items love affair on to her. When I stumbled upon Anna's shop and saw the white newborn booties with pink flower on them, I knew I had to have them.  Can you imagine anything more sweet on a new baby's feet than these booties? I know I can't.

Just a few more months until sweet little feet will be inside the booties!

The booties arrived in the mail extremely fast.  They were beautifully packaged in a pink box with pink tissue paper inside.  If that doesn't announce girl, I don't know what does!  Anna's crocheting is top notch and these are made with love, care, and quality materials.  The booties come in three sizes: newborn to 3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-9 months.  I chose the newborn size as you can tell since my daughter is due in December.  I love the contrast of the white with the pink of the flower, it's a great color scheme.

I plan on putting these on baby girl when we come home from the hospital.  Since it'll be very cold out, these will be perfect for keeping her feet warm.  Even though the booties are white, don't worry about them getting dirty since they can be washed by hand.  After you wash them, simply lay them out to dry and reshape them with your fingers.  

What's most important about these booties is that they are handmade and not something that you can just pick up from your local baby store.  I love the fact that they are one of a kind, that's special to me.  

For right now, the shoes wait for my daughter in her room.  Hopefully these next few months will fly by so I can not only meet her, but she can wear these ridiculously cute booties.

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Daisy Needle Works's Etsy Shop for providing me with a complimentary pair of baby booties in exchange for this post.  All thoughts are my own.
