I'll take some photos of everything and show them to you after I've gone and had a lie down :)

They took so long to make because I had to figure out the pattern for the medium and small babushkas as I was crocheting them and I kept making mistakes. Also, I was halfway through making the large blue one when I found out that I had been using a crochet hook one size too small. These are the tags that went with them:

Grey felt, calico and some gorgeous mushroom fabric,
two balls of Yarn Bee Down to Earth (55% acrylic and 45% cotton)
which I have already started knitting up into a new project,
(more when it is finished),
and some buttons.
Love love love craft shopping :)

This pair is made from acrylic felt in grey and greyish blue, embroidery thread and pink ribbon.
And this pair is made from blue wool felt, white acrylic felt, embroidery thread and two red buttons.
My mum requested them for a colleague who had not had her baby at the time, but who is now about two months old! Thank the lord I made the larger size. The pattern I used was Heather Bailey's Bitty Booties. This is a great and easy to follow pattern, and I would recommend visiting Heather's blog. It's pretty. Also, if you want to learn how to make yo-yos, she has a great tutorial for you to follow.
