Peek a boo boot cuffs!

I know, it’s Spring, but I couldn’t resist updating these fun patterns.

The Peek a boo Panda Boot cuffs were the very first pattern I ever wrote back in February 2016. My daughter still loves Pandas as much as she did when I created these for her. These boot cuffs opened up the possibility of so much more in my life and gave me the desire to create even more.

Back in 2016 I created an entire series of boot cuff patterns, but only released 4 of them. During this time of uncertainty and staying home I want to give you items that are quick, easy, and help you stash bust. These boot cuffs seemed like the perfect item to add to the list. I am starting with the ones I had previously released and updating the patterns to make them easier to read and well organized. I plan to release the child size instructions for each design on my blog for free, so you can make them to your hearts content. If you would like to have all of the sizes from Toddler through Large Adult I have the PDF for sale in all of my shops for a small fee. You can find them by clicking on the links below.
