FIRST- Thank you to all you lovelies who gave me the great feedback on my puppets, it pretty much made my day...SO...
OF course I will get that tutorial out. I am hoping for sometime next week ( if I could just get over this cold)...so keep checking back.
Now on to my "Hey I Can Do That" Saturdays. It has been awhile...but they are back...
A couple of weeks ago I voted for this craft over at So You Think You Are Crafty. I have been wanting to make baby shoes FOREVER. I always talked myself out of it because...well it looks hard and they are so tiny.
This week I decided to throw caution to the wind and make some. While my first attempt may not be perfect, I am thinking the sweet baby wearing these will surely pull people's eyes away from the clumsily hand-stitched heel.
For the most part I found this pattern easy to follow. I did do some things a little different.
Things I did differently--
I sewed the heel lining to the main shoe lining before sewing on the main sole.
I did not use interfacing because I was using a heavier fabric for the shoes.
I sewed the velcro to the strap BEFORE sewing and turning out so you don't see the stitches. I also did the same for the velcro on the outside of the shoe.
I loved this project. Let's just say I have more shoes already cut out and ready to sew.
