this post is about a little, literally little, sewing project i did back in december. one of my former co-workers' daughter was pregnant with her first baby, and my co-worker's first grand baby! everyone in their family was so excited about the news...and even more excited when they found out it was a little girl. when i found out they were having a little girl i knew i wanted to do some sewing for the little miss...who is named Savannah Jane, and she made her debut in February.
i had some leftover fabrics and decided to whip up something from those. i went to Hobby Lobby on one of their $0.99 Simplicity pattern days and found a cute pattern for some baby booties and shoes. i chose the little shoes that had the strap going across the top.
this was my first time ever making baby items and so i followed this pattern to a 't'. it was actually really fun making these shoes because they were so tiny and they turned out so cute.
for these multicolor ones i did a cute little plastic heart button on the top of the strap for a cute little detail.
for these blue and green ones, i chose the awesome flat, felt buttons that coordinated with the button-shaped flowers on the fabric.
when i finally got these surprise shoes to the granny-to-be she was so ecstatic about them! seeing the reaction of joy on her face reminded me even more why i love to make surprise items for people! i also found out not too long ago that her other daughter is expecting her first baby, a boy, in june...so there may be another surprise baby gift in the works. until then, onto the next blog catch-up!!
