We seek handmade baby booties from women's cooperatives all around the world. We want to collect 11,700 booties that are extremely varied and traditional to as many ethnic groups as possible. The preciousness of the booties as a craft item, made by women who love their daughters, provides a caring, loving counter-message to the brutal facts of gendercide.
Please make baby shoes that are approximately 4" (10 cm) in length. Smaller booties may not be visible in this large installation, and larger ones may be difficult to mount. Questions? email@example.com.
You are welcome to use your own patterns, but if you need a pattern, we have some right here that you can use. For some ideas on how to make baby booties, please check out the links below:
