Okay...so if you are like me...you'll understand...and if you aren't...you'll think I'm crazy!
I LOVE projects! That is why my Aunt calls me the 'project girl'. But the down side to being the 'project girl' is that when I have an idea or inspiration, I can't rest until I have tried it, solved it, done it...whatever!
So, there I was laying in bed trying to sleep when I finally decided to give up and just get up! I haven't had project induced insomnia for quite some time, though I did have pregnancy induced insomnia early on. Fortunately, I eventually got away from the pregnancy type and have been sleeping well for many months. However, tonight I had project insomnia. I was so stoked about the baby shoes that I kept thinking of how I could make them better, cuter, easier, etc.
So, what became of my project insomnia-tic restlessness:
Another pair of Sarah Shoes:
|Aren't they ADORABLE...|
and SO much better than my first try!
|The insides are a red that matches the outside...|
though in the picture it doesn't much look like they match...
trust me...they do!
|And this time...I used this GREAT tool my Sister-in-law H gave me some time ago....|
It is an eyelet tool that worked PERFECTLY to put in these beautiful little flowers
for the lacing!
You can also see that this time, instead of pinking the edges at the top, I did the fold under thing. I definitely like this better. I also didn't add the quilting to the top...only the bottom of the shoe...which was WAY easier to work with. They still aren't perfect, but I like them SO much better than the first go around I think I can actually get some rest now. Amazing how that works!
But first, they are just so cute you have to look at them again:

At least, I think I can sleep now.
No. I promise.
I'm going to bed.
