My former boss (the head chef at Bloomingfoods West) and his wife (the former head chef at Bloomingfoods East) live just around the corner from us, and are expecting their first baby in about a month. I wanted to make something special for their baby, and my first thought was, of course, food.

I thought briefly about doing something with bacon, which was a shared obsession with most of the cooks in our kitchen, but quickly ruled that out because Christie is a vegetarian. So instead I took inspiration from the variety of color you see in a produce aisle, and knit these booties with mini fruits and veggies on the laces.

Suggested Retail: $24.00

Stay tuned for the really cool little gift I made for my friend Kaitlyn's baby. I'll put up pictures after her shower on Friday.
