Fit for a Wee Foot


A friend of mine who plays the flute (beautifully) in our little church ensemble just had her first baby -- a beautiful baby boy named Ethan with a head full of dark hair! He is both preciously perfect and perfectly precious. I had heard her mention that she liked soft baby shoes, so I went looking for a tutorial and came up with these:



I'm not overly fond of the pattern, but I'm pleased with the result! I used fake leather for the soles (a gift from a sewing friend), and brown suede for the backs. A giraffe and a zebra -- remants from a Daisy Kingdom dress my mother made years ago -- should keep Ethan's little toes toasty!




And in a few weeks I'll be posting a girly pair, made for a friend whom we'll be visiting on our journey!
