Origami Baby Booties

Origami Baby Booties

One of my best pals – Priyanka – has her baby due next month and since I won’t be able to see her bundle of joy till early next year (sigh!), I thought of folding this adorable pair of baby booties just for her (her baby, rather)!

I used construction paper instead of origami paper to fold these. The design is pretty simple and instructions are pretty easy to follow, too. I think a total of 11 or 12 folds gets you a completed bootie and this includes the folds to shape the bootie!

I used square sheets of paper measuring approx 8.5 inches (duo-colored); for the β€˜laces’ I used thin tissue paper cut into narrow strips and once creating a simple knot in the front of each bootie, I tied the two ends into a separate knot. Well, I found this easier than making a pretty bow out of 4 strands of paper as it kept coming apart. πŸ˜€

These are really very very cute. Looking at it I couldn’t make out that they were so simple to make. Really cute.

Hey, this is fantastic! Just a quick question, though. I can’t figure out how you got the shoelaces on – did you tie a knot around the top part of the shoe somehow? Thanks!

Ancella November 7, 2011 at 6:59 PM

Hi John,

Yes, you guessed it right! I took those colored paper ribbons (blue and yellow) and tied it around the bootie, with a knot up in the front. You need to hide it under the flap – which you see around the ankle – so it doesn’t look too bad, then. πŸ™‚

Thanks so much Ancella! That really helped! I figured this would be a nice gift for a couple of friends who are expecting very soon.
