Baby Booties for Jamie & Amanda

Jamie and Amanda, friends of my daughter and son-in-law, are expecting their second baby in about 2 weeks.  It's a boy.  I wanted to make a small baby gift for them and Christine's Stay-On baby booties was the ideal pattern.  My daughter loved the pair she received when her son was born, thanks to my friend, Sheila.
