Oh, you guys are simply brilliant! I was hoping to have you fooled with the photo of the iPod, but you dear readers were not falling for my trickery!
Yes, they are baby shoes….totally stylin’ fabric baby shoes from a pattern I snagged over at Maked.ca
However I did make a few changes since I no longer have a newborn.
I made them to fit my 6 month old little guy, simply by expanding the pattern out on all sides about 1/3 of an inch, and an extra bit around the heel, and I also added about 1 inch in elastic.
(my little guy has fat wide short feet in case your wondering)
I loved this pattern because it is reversible, and I got to use different fabrics and colors for the shoes.
Another change I made, was that I top-stitched with a decorative stitch around the edge.
Personally, I like the look of this better, but if you do this be aware that your reversible side wont lay as flat (see left shoe in the photo)
Look, they’re even more adorable when they’re on baby feet!
These were SOOOOOO easy to make, like 10 minutes per shoe, and the pattern is quite simple to follow. I’ll be making these as a staple new baby gift for sure!
