I love the fabric you chose! I have made (no joking) about 50 pairs of these little shoes! They are great for baby (and you can change the pattern size for bigger kiddos too). They also make great gifts! For wee ones who are starting to walk I usually put dots of puff paint on the bottom for grip.

WOW!! That's a lot of baby shoes Smiley
Thanks for the compliment. I used some leftover fabric from another project. I still have some other fabric so I'll probably make some more as well, but I don't think I'll make as many as you did.

Those look great! I especially like the Batman shirt and the dinosaur pants. I always find it difficult to find nice patterns for boys clothing, so I'll save these patterns to use!

I found this pattern to make baby shoes. I really like quick and easy to make projects because I can only sew on weekends.
So I made these. I like how they turned out. They are easy to make, and you don't need a lot of fabric so it is great to use up some fabric you have laying around.

My sister gave birth to a babygirl last week, so I made her a present. It's a towel. I'm pretty proud of myself, I'm pretty new to sewing so I had to learn some new techniques but I'm happy with the result.

They look great. My next project will have to be these socks, I want them!

That looks so awesome!! I'm jealous, wish I would have the creativity to design something like that.

I started knitting this as well. Did you finish yours? Can you post pictures, I'm really curious what it looks like.

It looks great! I really like the adjustments you made to the original pattern.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ice skates on: December 14, 2011 03:14:28 AM
I saw these ice skates in a shop. They looked pretty easy to make so I tried to make them myself at home. It was really easy so I made a bunch to make christmas cards.

I used small paperclips, but you can modify the pattern to match the size of your paperclip.

Attach the yarn to your hook with a slip knot.
Attach the yarn to the paperclip with a slip stitch, starting at the blunt side of the paperclip.
Make 5 single crochet stitches.
At the end of the row, make 1 chain stitch.
Turn your work around and make 5 single crochet stitches.
Make 1 chain stitch, turn your work around, make 3 crochet stitches. Repeat this step until the boot is big enough (I did 4 rows).
Cut yarn and thread through the last stitch. Weave in the ends of the yarn.
With a different color, make laces by pulling yarn trhough the stitches.

This is my first pattern so if I made any mistakes or if anything is unclear, please ask.
I would love to see pictures of other ice skates!
