The girls I work with on Tuesdays both wanted to make baby shoes – so I have spent time over the weekend preparing some exemplars for them, to take to today’s session…
The patterns are all from the internet – from left to right
- Craft Bits ‘matryoshka doll’ shoes [here]
- Stardust shoes [here]
- Purlbee baby shoes [here]
- Martha Stewart felt slippers [here]
The Purlbee shoes don’t show up well in my photo – please do click on this link to see the originals in a glorious rainbow of colours! They are completely hand-sewn. The others are a mixture of hand and machine work – and quite fiddly to make because they are so tiny. I shall be interested to see which style the girls choose.
The two pairs shown above are my favourites. I don’t mind making exemplars of small items like this – I am glad it was nothing larger.
