Baby Shoes

The theme of “handmade holidays” was all over the crafting blogosphere this past holiday season and some ambitious people even took pledges to give only handmade gifts. I am certainly not one of those ambitious people, and my gift recipients are probably grateful for that, but I couldn’t resist giving my smallest recipient {my new niece Leah} something handmade. That and I really wanted to try and make these soft baby shoes. These shoes were one of the most fun projects I have ever made. Relatively simple and quick, they came together in one evening. The sole is made out of 2 layers of fleece and while these wouldn’t be great for walkers or even crawlers (such as mine) they seem perfect for keeping newborn toes cozy. I’m not sure if Leah will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them, but at least her little piggies will be warm!

These shoes are adorable! Ruth (in our ward) made some for Ruthie and I love them! I would love to learn how to make them for I feel a craft fever coming on. Right now my project is nursing covers so if you feel the urge to make one let me know. I'm making a bunch for all the thousands of pregnant women in our ward!
