baby shoes

A couple of months ago, my cousin gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  My cousin was born with spina bifida and after trying for about 5 years and finally being told she would probably never be able to get pregnant, God gave her a miracle.  I wanted to give her a special gift, so I decided on handmade baby shoes.  I’m so pleased with how they turned out!  (I used this pattern that I bought online.)

My first (unsuccessful) attempt at making this pattern was done using an old purse, like here.purse shoes  It was definitely much easier to make them with cotton fabric.  But I have another leather purse I bought at a yard sale, so I’ll give it another try sometime.  I’d like to try my hand at this too – upcycled shopping bag shoes.bagshoes

Perhaps by using this technique of fusing plastic shopping bags.

I’m really hoping our baby is a girl so I can make her all kinds of adorable shoes!!
