Today was a day I just needed to sit down and make something fun. I remembered I had bought this suede (which in real life is more of a light gray) to make some shoes for miss E with.
Well, the girl has really started to walk a lot more now so it was time to make her these shoes! She needs some.
I used a pattern from a book I bought at Books A Million called Hobbies and Crafts: Leather Craft and Weaving (Research and Education Association). The pattern was actually for 6/9 month old, but I did my best to resize it.
I still want to tweak it a little bit more, but I was happy with the result.
I used some leather cording stuff I just had in my stash for the ties. I have no idea where it came from.
I also tried to have more contrast by using yellow embroidery thread on the toes part, but you really don’t see it that much. Still makes me happy I want to try the moccasins pattern that is in the book next.
Here is to fun creating time!
