So, while looking for projects for Abi to do for fair, I came across this ADORABLE shoe pattern. I will admit, my first attempt didn't turn out like the pictures, but I still think they are cute and I am betting they will look better on than just sitting on the desk!
|Side view...the button is just for looks,|
it actually attaches with velcro.
|The original pattern has a second fabric for the inside. |
I decided for my first attempt to just make inside and out the same.
|I can't wait to try these on Sarah...|
Abi tried to put them on her doll for us to take pictures...
they were too big.
|I hand sewed these little rosettes on the fronts to help decorate the shoe a bit more....|
plus hide the back seam for the strap.
If I get a chance to make some more, I'll try to post pictures of those too! There are several 'versions' you can do (Abi will be doing one with a ribbon tie instead of the strap for the fair)...though I didn't buy all the patterns, I think I could figure out the other versions fairly easily. We will see.
(Oh...and I used pinking shears on the edges as instructed, but I found some pictures on Make It and Love It of a pattern you can buy from her...from the pictures, it looks like you could do it without. I might try a version like that too...we'll see.)
