This is my first post to show off a project.  I love craftster!  I have been lurking for quite sometime.  I must say I am very intimidated but totally inspired by the collective talent here!  I've decided I need to get out here and start posting and commenting!

I having been seeing all these darling baby shoes, here but I really wanted some ballet type slippers.  I found a pattern on this site: http://www.heatherbaileydesign.com/BittyBooties.pdf
It wasn't quite what I wanted but it gave me a really good base to work with.  I played around with the pattern till I got what I wanted.  They turned out so cute! 

Comments and criticism welcome!

Oh! So sweet. My DD had a pair in pink that she grew out of. I was so sad.
Did you use a pattern? Oops! I saw the picture before reading your post and jumped the gun! I found a book on how to make doll shoes. I think the patterns in there would work if up-sized. You have inspired me!

Those look great!!!  Ottobre has a very simular pattern to the ones you made.  I LOVE the glitter on the black fabric, the twins SOOOO need a pair of those Smiley  The only suggestion I would make is that if you zig zag over your seams & trim it down it will make them look a little more finished.  But honestly it doesn't really matter.  GREAT first post Smiley

Thanks for the tip!  I'll do that!  It did look kinda funky.
