Mackenzie's New Shoes

I originally bought this fabric thinking I'd use it in a quilt or something, I just loved it.  But I only bought a yard or it.  Then when I started making the shoes I really wanted to make a pair of shoes out of it.  I put soft felt in the inside of the shoe.  I really think these shoes will match a lot of outfits because of all the colors.  I just love them!  And of course I can't decide which pictures I like best.

 She will have her thumb soon, I hope.  She is always chewing on her hand and pulling up her dress, shirt or blanket to chew on.

 hehehe, I just think the picture above is a funny face.

Baby Boy Shoes

Here is a pair of baby boy shoes I made. Although I was told they can be unisex shoes.
If you can't tell from the picture, there is no visible seam inside the shoe.  I took pictures to make a tutorial for this shoe and the Pleated Mary Jane shoes that I made, so be on the look out for the tutorial.

Pleated Mary Jane Baby Shoe

I made this pleated Mary Jane shoe.  I love them!  I think they are so cute!  After I made the ones that were too small, I made ones that are called Kimono and I did something wrong, they just didn't turn out right.  Then I did this pleated Mary Jane shoe using the pattern found at
And I made mistakes, ughh!  I wanted to get it done quick and I'm working little sleep these days.  When I cut it out I forgot to reverse the one pattern so that the seams would be on the inside of each shoe.  So when I cut another one I went ahead and cut enough so I can make 2 pairs.  And good thing I did, because I realized that I have the pleats going the same direction, when I should have them both face in or out.  So now I'll be making the other pair, hopefully with no mistakes.  But not bad for my first pair, huh?
I'm too excited to post these, so I'm posting it even though there are mistakes.

See the pleats go the same way, OOPS!  I want them both to face in and then I can add a flower, button, bow or whatever on the outside of each toe for a little decoration.

Before Mackenzie and I left to go out to lunch with some ladies I used to work with, I quickly snapped these pictures.  I'll have to get some better ones after I re-make them the correct way.
