More for Wee Feet!

Just now we're visiting with some dear friends in South Dakota, who have just had their first baby, Abigail. We met Abigail's mother while she still lived with her family (who live about an hour from us), but she married last year and moved all the way to South Dakota!

Using the same tutorial that I used for my "Safari" soft baby shoes, I made a little pair for Abigail:

I had a great deal of trouble with these shoes (probably because the material wasn't as thick as the other pair I made), which I solved by not inserting the elastic through the upper part of the shoe (it makes sense if you read the tutorial!). Instead, I sewed the elastic to each end of the casing. No more strange puckers on the sides of the shoes!

But I thoroughly enjoyed getting to add a bit of feminine detail to this pair!

I hope you like them, Abigail!


  1. Wow!!!

    Those are ten times cuter than the last pair, and they were really cute.

    Do you only make those for family/friends?

  2. I have made that same baby shoes pattern many times! I never thought about sewing the elastic like you said. Mine always puckered and looked a little funny. I should try that on my next pair!

  3. Ever so cute, Shannon! I'm sure she'll love them...☺


  4. Shannon, those are so pretty!!! I loved both styles of these little shoes.Thanks for sharing:-)

    Lots of love,

  5. Oh they are so sweet! Just lovely!


  6. Thank you so much! I can now say that they fit little Abigail perfectly (with a smidgeon of room to grow), which was a big relief!

    Rita, these are the first two I've made, and since I used a tutorial I can only make them for friends. Hmm, maybe I should come up with my own... but with no baby feet to try them on, it would be rather difficult :)

    Yours in Christ,

  7. Oh Shannon! Those are so pretty!

  8. Once again Shannon, these are just way too cute!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
