Dream Crusher

You might be wondering what happened with my sewing projects or more specifically the baby boots. For a while there I was a sewing maniac. I had morphed the original boot pattern into something wonderful that i think people might actually buy instead of scoff at, and then i began looking for a more durable type of fleece.....and that's where i ended. Not because a more durable type of fleece is impossible to come by, but because according to the CPSIA JKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ regulations, fleece is banned. Only materials that are natural (cotton, wool, etc) are allowed to be used without being tested. So if you know anyone who would be willing to put wool boots on their babies, send me an email.

  1. Come now Kari! Do not give up!
    Go search wool booties or wool felt baby boots on Etsy and see what you come up with. Even if parents don't want wool touching their kiddos' skin, you can still line the insides with cotton and BABOOM! you're back in business.
    And yeah. that CPSIA is a real um....pain, to put it nicely.
