I've been wanting to do this little project for some time now, but this morning, the same day as the Country Baby Shower for our Little Grandpeach, I finally accomplished it. I wasn't sure how hard these would be to make, but with a little re-reading of some of the steps, I did it without messing up. And....I had FUN! I can't wait to try more. I have lots of fun polka dot fabrics and things that will make cute girlie shoes and every girl needs plenty of shoes, doesn't she? Why not start at one month old? As you can see, I made them with the Christmas holiday in mind. Perhaps Little Grandpeach will be able to fit into them by then.
If you're interested go to Stardust Shoes Blog and click Cloth Baby Shoes for the pattern and instructions. You'll enjoy lots of cute shoe photos to inspire you. I do want to try to make a pair of leather shoes sometime soon. A friend at the baby shower said her grandson had a pair almost identical to these only they were leather. She said they didn't slip when he walked in them and they really held up well. I see Stardust has a pattern for the leather shoes too. Woo Hoo!
