    Downy Footwarming goodness.

    My first shot at DiY Down gear. Man down is officially not my favorite stuff to work with.

    Nice looking. What did you use as the shell? Finished weight? Fill weight on down?

    Great job! I've been wanting to make me some, but time seems to slip away and now wish I'd have just bought a pair.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    Wow, nice booties!
    I really like your pattern. Can you give us more details on the pattern and construction method?

    Very nicely done! Would love to get a better understanding of how these were put together.

    If that is your first DIY effort you are going to do great on a lot of stuff.

    Booties are not an easy item to sew

    I have done them before and mine did not start out with the finished look your first ones did.
    I also would like construction details

    Great project. I want to make a pair, but I am going to wait and read more on experiences others have had constructing, booties.

    Love the colors of your booties. Thank you for sharing

    Nice project. Like others here, I too would welcome instructions and/or a cutting pattern, if possible.

    Cheers,
