Booties on Demand

The knitted booties have proved to be a hit again at the fair today and they've also been sold at The Hub Gallery in Sleaford. They are the perfect present for that special newborn baby in your life or indeed that special baby coming into your life! The pattern suggest they are size 0-6 months but as with all baby clothing, this can vary greatly from baby to baby, so if you have any queries please do contact me.

My mum does the knitting (it would take me at least a month per shoe!) while I finish them off with the signature polka dot buttons. The yarn used is wondersoft pearl double knit which is an incredibly soft acrylic yarn, perfect for babies. Whats more they are completely washable (40 degrees) and can be tumble dried!

They can be made to order in these 5 different colours (or I will try my best to source a yarn to match your needs) with buttons to match. Ivory booties can be made with which ever colour buttons you would like (as indeed can all the other colour booties).

If you would like a pair of booties made to order or have any special requirements please don't hesitate to contact me. I will then arrange payment and delivery as soon as possible, Booties are £8.

Polka.Button is BACK!

Today Polka.Button relaunched after a few months away (in which time I moved twice!), I apologise for the massive absence, but sometime life just sweeps you up and the time flies by, but I am back. With a vengeance! I spent the day at the 740th annual Great Hockham Horn Fair with my little stall and it was wonderful to be back out selling and chatting to customers. (Thanks to Mama bear for all the help and the flask of tea!)

Thank you to everyone who bought something or took a card, I hope you found your way here to my blog. Welcome to the new and welcome back and thanks for sticking with Polka.Button to the old! As my listings on Folksy have expired (they only last 6 months sadly) I will be getting round to re-listing some of the stock I have left this week.

The big news at the moment is that (all being well!) Polka.Button is going to be holding a stall at the delectable and scrumptious St.Benedicts Summer Lanes Fayre 2011! Last years fayre was such a huge success and surely in its second year it can only get better?! So save the date 10th JULY! Great food, music, crafts and arts. Basically its a hell of a day out in the fine city.
