Those shoes are just plain adorable, Taloola! 
But wait til you all see what kitschbitch sent me.....

I received her fantastic package today, and it is JUST PERFECT.  I'm so spoiled!

This is an adorable little bunny for my baby... done in bright colors and batik!!


And these bibs are amazing.  Not only are they adorable, but they are wide  AND vinyl-covered, so I can just wipe them off -- minimizing stains!  WOW.  I told her I'm going to have to "borrow" this idea and make my little one many more of these!


Now check out these details and hand-stitching on the bias tape!!


I was drooling over Taloola's baby booties earlier today, and then I opened my package to be totally spoiled:

I can't get over these fabrics.

A super-soft baby hat (which I loved so much, I had bookmarked a pattern for it, to try later!)


And this super-cool blankie:


Thank you SO much, kitschbitch!  I love it all!  You are a fabulous partner.  Grin
OH -- and she included a neat scarf for my preteen daughters to fight over.... (and they did.  And the oldest won for now.)

I'm so glad you like everything barbolot!  It was fun making it all!  I spent two days making like 14 pairs of booties (4 for you and 10 for my sister--having twins means double the craftin' Smiley ).  The bibs were super easy!  If anyone wants a tutorial or pattern for anything just pm me (the bunny is from Wee Wonderful and the booties are from a site online). Oh, and I didn't make the scarf, so I can't help anyone with that Smiley .

WYOKrista, the fabric I used is mainly from a scrap fabric swap craftster had in January, expect for the blankie which is Alexander Henry's Tattoo collection (which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!)  I buy my AH fabric from www.buyfabricsonline.com.

This swap is so much fun!

That package is adorable - I love the booties too!  Thanks for the link, I'm going to have to try my hand at a pair (or two or three).
