My neighbor's daughter is such a cutie! She loves to come to my house and do some crafts. For Mother's Day, I traced her handprint onto felt two times.
Next I cut out 2 pair, one for her grandmother, too. I then cut out pistons out of bright pink and leaves out of green.
Lastly, I rolled it all up and put green wire around them with a pin on the back. They loved them!!!
My sister now has two little girls under the age of 2. I LOVE them and LOVE them and LOVE them. Elle loves my dog. (She's the older of the two). So I try to make up for it by making them stuff. This month I decided to make them matching felt shoes. I've used this pattern before when Elle was small and they always turn out so cute.
I did have to make them a bit bigger for Elle and cut them the pattern size for Bree. I started on Elle's first.
Such cute little flowers. Such pretty embroidery. They are shown here with the tops and the bottoms. Here they are finished...
Now, you'll notice that the left shoe has some issues. That's because the night I finished them, my darling dog that my nieces love so much thought he would put his own touch of love on them.
And of course she chewed them in such a way that I will have to redo the entire top portion to fix them.
So I gave up on this pair for now and started on Bree's. Their coming along much better- out of reach of Lucy!!!
Such cute little flowers. Such pretty embroidery. And so high out of reach of my lovely Lucy dog. :) All I have left is to punch the holes for the strings and to embroider around the tops. That should be finished within the week, I figure.
These are actually extremely easy to make and you can embellish as much or as little as you want. I like to put puffy paint on the bottoms so that they have a little traction.
