Pitter Patter...

Recently I became an aunt for the 19th time.
Yes, you read that correctly - 19.
For real.


Needless to say, we are all pretty excited around here...

And as with all birthdays, you've gotta have some presents!

When I have the time, I love to create handmade gifts for my family and friends -
they're so much more personal.

So, for my new little niece, I made my first attempt at handmade baby shoes....
here they are:


I had all of the fabric and buttons on hand, so the only thing I had to do was get some elastic for the cuffs. They were super easy to make -
cutting them out and ironing on the interfacing took longer than the actual sewing!

If you would like to try making some yourself, you can find a free pattern HERE.
This is a great way to use up little odds and ends scraps of coordinating fabrics from your stash.

I certainly plan on making some more - they're super easy and quick and make a perfect baby gift...

In fact, I'll probably be making some more pretty soon.

Number 20 is due later this year.
