The One With The Pathetic Attempt

Well, I decided to try to make these shoes for Paige last night....

Her feet are too small for buttons... and I couldn't find small black or pink elastic in time. She was asleep so I couldn't get exact measurements. So, I kind of had to improvise, as I always seem to have to do. Felt is really hard to work with on such tiny projects since its so thick... I'm embarrassed to say the shoes looked a little funny, but the worst part was that they were barely too small for her. I spent all that time for nothin... oh well... :) It was fun to craft again.

This is the outfit... how cute is that!? I love it. She looked so cute in it, even if she didn't fit in her shoes. On the way home from the baptism, she did one of her huge, huge pukes... twice, all over her, her new dress, and her car seat. I feel so bad for her when she does that. At least she waited until everyone saw how cute she looked!

I may or may not try to make one of the ruffle shoes. But not for a little while.

I think they're cute. And you are much more ambitious than me. I recently threaded a needle. So don't be hard on yourself!
