Project #3 - Baby Shoes & Bibs

A while ago I started making baby shoes based on a pattern in Amy Butler's "Little Stitches for Little Ones" pattern book.

I managed to get 6 pairs of shoes sewn together before I lost the drive to continue. These shoes have been sitting on my bookcase for around 4 months now, waiting to have some soles slip stitched in so it's time to get some motivation and finish these off!

On a side note, the Amy Butler pattern book is full of soooo many cute things. I highly recommend this pattern book, but must stress that the instructions (in my opinion) are not written clearly enough for beginner sewers. I would suggest that this book is best for intermediate to advanced level sewers.

Once the shoes are finished (hopefully by tomorrow night), I'll be onto making matching bibs (and might even put up a tutorial if I'm feeling inspired).

Oh, I failed to mention I also made some cute little tags for the back of the shoes, which say "Boehm * Baby".
