no future as a foot model
I do have another patterning project in the works, but I got sidetracked after an unsuccessful shoe shopping trip for C. I was kind of frustrated at the prices of baby shoes. I mean, she doesn't even walk yet, but sometimes I want to put something cute on her feet. Then I had an idea: I'll make some!
These were quick to put together with some linen and cotton plus a few layers of batting and interfacing for the soles, and ribbon for the straps.
I thought I had designed them so that she couldn't get her foot out, but I was wrong. As soon as I put the sandals on, she was doing all kinds of dancing (right out of one of them)! Oh well. A few cute photos with these and her Easter dress and we'll be good.:)
