ohhhh, i could not resist posting this weekend to show you all the new sweet pea baby shoe pattern! cheri always blows my mind with her adorable shoe patterns! you can not get any cuter. i cannot wait until i have time to make some of them before harper is too big. seriously, the slouch boots - i. die. so adorable! i was planning on knitting harper some just like this but was whining to myself that there was no way i was going to find the time and then poof - cheri emailed me with her newest pattern and i literally squealed and woke the baby. crappy, but oh so worth it.
this is the perfect time of year for some stylish and rockin super slouchy baby booties! put them on with your girl's cutest skirt and some fab tights with legwarmers, or jeans, heck leggings work too! not a fan of beige, no prob! you make the shoes so you are in control of the fabric, the color, the texture and even what's inside and on the sole! when we were kids wasn't it fun to play fashion designer? well now you can! thanks to sweet pea pattern's easy instructions and assembly of these adorable shoes. she provides you with the hard parts and you get to go all willy nilly with the shoe! throw some new amy butler on there or maybe anna maria horner and if it's a boy why not try some helicopter green from echino nico or one of my new faves zoo menagerie by eleanor grosch.
"two little feet, ten little toes, leave their impressions today. soon they will wear two little shoes, and be running and jumping at play."
these little shoes also make the perfect xmas present for those special little toes in your life. can't decide which one to make? well don't fret, cheri's thought of that too. you can purchase for a great price 3 patterns for $12 or even 5 patterns for only $20! wowsa! i think i may be needing to add to my collection.
how can you resist making some of these? i get so many ideas just looking at them! all the fabric combinations, buttons, velcro, leather or suede...the possibilities are endless.
you can even make yourself a pair to match from cheri's other shop - shoeology! now that's what i call sewing fun! sweet pea's patterns range in size from newborn to 18months and cheri's goal with sweet pea patterns is to "provide stylish sewing patterns for an affordable price without sacrificing quality". all of sweet pea patterns come with easy to follow instructions with clear step by step photos and patterns professionally drawn on the computer. even a beginner sewer can make these. cheri - you rock girl!
so let's all keep those yummy, chubby little baby toes warm with some fun and stylish shoes made with love!
which pair would you love to make? fave fabric choice to make them with? have you become addicted to making your own baby shoes?
