Baby Mary Janes

Hi!

I’ve been excited to share these little baby booties with you.  I’ve adapted a few patterns to work for what I wanted, and I’m pretty happy with the result.  Bonus – these weren’t quite as frustrating to make as the first pair!

I do intend to post a pattern and instructions at some point – promise!

I’m excited to slip these wee booties onto our little girl, although I’m pretty sure they won’t fit for the first 6 months or so.  For now I can just look at them on a shelf.

Warning:  These take several hours to make.  They aren’t a project that you can whip up in an hour.  I just try not to look at those $10 pairs of booties that I keep seeing everywhere because it’s a bit depressing knowing that these would have to sell for a heck of a lot more to make my time worth anything.  But that’s OK!  There’s a really nice feeling of pride at making something yourself and having it turn out.  Plus, Walmart doesn’t have this cute fabric, or a fun little hairclip to match!

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
