I finished two pairs of baby shoes last night!!!  I think they're just soooo cute, and I'm so happy with them!  I even made two little drawstring bags to go with them.  Cuter than a ducks butt!

I used a pattern, which is generally for sale here:  http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5108961

But for some reason she doesn't have any up right now.  Sad  But it's an awesome pattern!  I'm sure if you asked her, she'd put it back up--she was really fast getting back to me.

Those are great!  I bought the pattern on etsy--are they easy to make?  The pattern looks so simple, but you never know until the pieces are cut!  Anyway, yours look terrific.

They're pretty simple, once you get it.  It took me three tries, but now I feel like I "get it."  For example, the pattern says to "tack" the pieces together, which I swear took me about 5 minutes to realize meant to baste, but once I did that, I realized that I couldn't sew them together without the basting seams showing, so I ripped them out and tried again.  The second shoes were MUCH better, but it's because I pinned them, and didn't bother with the basting.  It took longer, I think, but the end result was MUCH neater.  The third try was the easiest, and took me about 20 minutes once I had the fabric cut.

BTW, does anyone have any advice re: finishing seams with a zigzag?  I cannot seem to do this correctly--it always comes out looking bad...is it just practice?

soooo cute! I love the red ones! Do they stay on baby's feet well?  I want to make some bitty booties (I saw someone made them and posted the other day) but was told by my mother they don't look like they'd stay on baby's feet...I don't have kids yet so I don't know these things!

I found if you set your zig zag stitch a little longer and then go off of the edge of the seam a little it works better.
