Baby shoes

A dear friend of mine had her first baby not long ago and I wanted to make something for her baby girl. I tried to knit a pair of baby shoes but dpns and I just don’t get along. I managed to finish 2 shoes but you should have seen them! They looked so different from each other that I thought I had used a completely different pattern for each one of them. Afther seeing so undeniable facts, I decided to play it safe and turned back to sewing, and I am so pleased I did as I couldn’t be happier with the results.

I knew straight away which fabric I wanted to use, this fabric is cute at its best and I have been waiting the right moment to use it, and now this moment has arrived. I don’t know about you but I think Japanese fabrics have that extra sweet touch that makes them perfect for a gift.

I went for a very simple pattern as the fabric is so pretty that it doesn’t need any help from complicated patterns. I had a bit of flannel in my stash that worked perfect as lining and I was ready to go.

I enjoyed making this tiny little shoes, I don’t usually sew for babies, but I found it great and gratifying that you finish baby things so quick, besides you use so little fabric that I think I will be making more presents than buying them.

I would love to make a baby quilt with these fabrics (Children at Play by Sarah Jane)… so if you know of a good pattern for them let me know, I am on a roll here!
