My latest craftiness

A mom on the July06 board posted a link to how to make baby shoes. I thought it was cool so I made Jack a pair

that was about 10 days ago. then I went shopping for funkier fabric and made these yesterday

Today is our anniversary so I made Rich this card - it's printed on vellum and attached with green eyelets

Plus I made a birthday card for my friend and a Christmas card for a gift exchange (will add those pictures later, Jack's starting to fuss)

I saw that link and want to make Carson these as well. Were they easy to make? I only dabble in sewing (as in, I can operate the machine), so I wasn't sure I could handle it. Your shoes came out great!

Yeah, I'd like the link too. Those look like they'd stay on Katie's feet and would make a GREAT present for my brother's baby that's due any day now.

Love the card!

So can you make those shoes larger? I have yet to find slippers that Karl will keep on his feet and those look perfect.

Ok, so who is going to make some for me? Biggrin Seriously, I don't own a sewing machine and wouldn't have a clue as to where to start. Someone needs to make a bunch and sell them to me!!!!! I love them and it is so hard to find cute boy shoes.

Gwen, those are awsome. You need to sell those on Etsy. I would totally buy some if I was having a baby.

Wow Gwen those are awesome. Your little guy is so adorable modeling them as well. You are one talented mama.

I'm definitely on board with the wanting the link so that I can make them as well. Would be a great idea for ds in a bigger size for slippers and for this next baby this coming fall/winter.

I didn't mean to disappear after I posted ... I've been so busy!

Anyhow, can't sell them because it's a non-commerical use pattern. But you can scale them to bigger sizes by copying the pattern to a larger size. These stay on Jack's feet great! But a little too great ... poor baby had marks from the elastic on one ankle tonight. I might cut that elastic out and go a little bit looser for him (so easy to replace the elastic!)

Here's the link - http://family-centered.com/needleworks/soft-baby-shoes/

And the first pair took me an hour to make. The second pair (which I love sooooooooo much more) took longer because I had to learn how to sew a buttonhole on my machine and I kept screwing it up. Luckily I was practicing on scraps, but it seriously cut into my shoe making time. Wink

Thank you! I have to wait until I go to my mom's house, but I think I'm going to make a bunch of them when I do. Smile
