There are a few projects over the course of my 10 1/2 year marriage that have not worked. My husband loves to tell the story of how I tried to crochet him gloves in college (it ended up looking like a Mickey Mouse hand). He always reminds me when I bought all these supplies to make paper and what a dumb idea that was. It was a total disaster… I only did it once and made a total mess of our house. Well when Isaac was born I was obsessed with Robeez, but unwilling to pay the high dollar for them. So I ordered a pattern from Ebay and made my husband go with me to a thrift store to go buy a leather skirt. Well needless to say, it turned out atrocious. That is another project hubby teases me about.

I don’t know if my sewing skills have improved or this tutorial was fantastic but I did it! So nah, nah, nah, nah boo boo hubby dear. You can check that off the list of the projects that did not go well because I have redeemed myself.

HOW STINKIN CUTE ARE THESE??? And I didn’t even plan it this way but there is a flower perfectly located on each shoe. I love them. I think I am obsessed. I want to make 19 of them. The great part about them is that you can use simple scraps of material that you have laying around. Now Kayla has a car seat tent, a diaper wipe case and shoes to match. LOL! I am sure she will appreciate that right?

I couldn’t find the bonded fleece for the sole like the author told me to use. So I just used a vinyl type material and fused fleece to the other side. It worked well I think.

I can’t just make one. I had to make another. This time I sewed a little bow on the front and used a different fabric for the back of the shoe. CUUUUUUUUUUUTE! And they probably cost me less than a dollar for a pair. That is my kinda price.

  1. Wow! They look great! I sorta looked into making some shoes a few months ago, but I chickened out. I’ve made 4 of those flower things you posted earlier this week…addicting! I love easy projects. I made some into pins, some into barretts.

  2. I’m thinkin’ the first pair needs some bling – like a sparkly button sewn into the center of the flower – after I saw the second pair with the ribbon and the contrasting color on the back side I just think “Little Miss” is gonna need some more pretties on those shoes – afterall she needs to stand out and not be compared to her carseat cover – ha – absolutely amazing that you are so gifted and not afraid of anything crafty…

  3. Ummm…I think I found my next project!!!! SOOOOOO CUTE.

    I just made an apron the other day from scratch that looks pretty darn cute. One of these days I’ll try and get around to taking a pic so you can see.

    keep the projects coming! I love it, a new one every day. woo hoo!

  4. Gonna HAVE to try this one…these would be really cute with your fancy flower on the top too…so cute, and a much better price than robeez! Eryn

  5. As soon as I started reading the post I KNEW you were going to bring up that thrift store leather skirt and this project. I TOTALLY remember that!

    But I have to say that you COMPLETELY redeemed yourself!! Soooo cute! You could totally sell those and make some moooolah!

  6. Oh my goodness! If I had a baby right now I’d be obsessed too! I loved those for my girls…..but I only had one pair! Little Kayla will have a pair for every outfit! How stinkin’ cute is that?

  7. You are the most amazing pregnant woman I know! WOW…the orange/brown pair are too cute! Makes me wish my baby was small enough…

  8. Sooooo cute…and now I don’t have one small enough to wear that type of shoe anymore. Wah!

  9. You amaze me…seriously…you could sell these for a big ol’ high dollar price on one of those fancy-schmancy sites.

    Is Kayla’s name set in stone? Like, written in blood and all? ‘Cause you know I am all about the monogramming…

  10. okay, how cute are those?!!! Your pre-labor projects crack me up – what a great, productive way to use that time that can be an anxious time. I’m thinking I may have to have another baby just to get those shoes! Do you think Todd will go for that? Oh, and the barretts, I can make those, I think:)

  13. These are absolutly adorable! And Congrats on your little one…so I know you may not get to my question very quickly…but I will ask it anyways.
    I just made two pairs from the tutorial you linked to. They turned out cute.
    I see on yours that you seem to skip the step involving pulling the elastic cord through the two holes. So do you just sew down the heel part inside the shoe?
    Any help is appreciated (when you have a moment). Take a look at mine here! http://2slicksgoodtimes.blogspot.com/2009/01/blog-post.html

  14. What an awesome Idea, my baby is 8 months old and I had to adjust the pattern slightly to fit her chubby feet, but they still turned out. I love your creativeness and the humor you add to your blog. Thanks for posting.

  15. Just passing through..but these are def. cute! I was curious if i could get a tutorial of some sort on how you made these? Is that possible?

  16. I know, I am terribly late to the party… These are adorable. I wanted to make my own, but the pattern appears to not be available on the Michael Miller website anymore. Do you, by chance, still have the PDF that you could email to me? I’d really appreciate it!

  17. I loved this and also am way late to the party! The link to Michael Miller is not active anymore, BUT I did find the downloadable PDF after googling it. Here it is: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCgQFjAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.michaelmillerfabrics.com%2Findex.php%2Ffileuploader%2Fdownload%2Fdownload%2F%3Fd%3D0%26file%3Dcustom%252Fupload%252FFile-1366639317.pdf&ei=zybWVJ3SLIKpgwT1s4KwAQ&usg=AFQjCNGEZcB5VYOD56hTSGg486Yd3bMK6A&sig2=OqenyhPmV3EPGJU0eye2cQ&bvm=bv.85464276,d.eXY

    It opened automatically as a download for me. I hope the link works for you all!
