Baby Shoes

My baby has outgrown all of the super cute little baby shoes that you can buy in the stores. I have a pair of Carters baby slippers that are shaped like the most adorable little puppy dogs - complete with little fuzzy ears but as I went to put them on him today I was so sad to see that he has outgrown them! So, I decided to make my own!
I made two pairs - one is a soft blue chenille and the other is a sweet little baseball theme. I love them!! They were such fun to make I just know I'll be making many more!

I found a cute little pattern here. They are very quick and easy to make and she has a wonderful tutorial as well as a printable pattern! They are for size 6-9 months but you can do what I did and just cut them slightly larger if you need them bigger.

Have fun and enjoy!!

Oh.My.Word! Those are adorable!

Gosh, it seems f-o-r-e-v-e-r since I've been able to visit you. You've been very very busy (as usual) and I've enjoyed each and every post I've missed. Lots of good ideas and I loved seeing all the photos.

We had a ball on our California trip, but it's always nice to return home. I'm still gradually catching up on things around here. (Just in time before company comes next week...our daughter and my Mom and Aunt.)

Adorable. I wish mine girls were that little again. It goes so fast.

They are the cutest! Thanks for sharing the site for directions. I might give it a try ....for a girl of course.
