Meet the itty bitty baby booties.. aka the most frustrating thing I’ve ever sewn! These took me many many hours (I don’t sew much!), accompanied by much cursing and seam-ripping, and accepting some of the mistakes as part of the overall “specialness” of the shoes. Le-sigh. They’ll be better next time, if there is a next time. Luckily I used cute fabric, and the ruffles add to the mashed together look, masking some of the flaws.
Why ruffled Mary Jane shoes? Well, news: It’s a girl! I’m so super stoked at how many girly things I get to jump into now. More booties? Perhaps. Little dresses? Yes please! Headbands and hairclips and bows and flowers? Oh my!
Wanna know the awesome thing? The fabric is from Stampin’ Up! It was actually sold as a Christmas set of 3 fat quarters last year, and is now available year-round. (Item # 121715 – Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric). It’s so perfect for non-Christmas items!
I’m a little bit in love with their stock of fabrics and how they match with the buttons, brads, inks, papers, etc. Love love love. I may have ordered multiples of some patterns
