Today I was at Zellers and I saw these little ornament booties. I thought they were just ornaments but as I looked at them I realized they were almost the exact size of my daughter's feet.
Upon closer inspection, I realized that they open up and could be used as real booties. The only thing that I'd have to do is cut off the strings that make them ornaments. Or perhaps, I could leave them on so that the parents can hang them up somewhere? What's your take on that?
Here's a pic of the ornament:

If you knit, perhaps you could use these booties as an idea for how big to make booties for the micro-premies.

I need to get at least 3 for the boxes that I have ready to go to the hospital. I really would like to take them in before Christmas or have someone take them for me. I have everything else for these 3 boxes.
If anyone would like to volunteer to decorate boxes, I currently have
