What is it about baby shoes that is just so CUTE???
A couple of days I mentioned that I was embroidering some baby boots - here are the finished versions.
They are for a baby born about 10 days ago - his parents have just aquired chickens - hence the pecking chicks on the fronts of the shoes.
They are made in vintage linen and have been great fun to work out.
I have a Japanese craft book with lovely baby shoes in it but none of them looked very practical as they are more like adult court shoes and I suspect that they would fall off on first outing.
I based these on those lovely leather baby shoes that don't fall off at all.
A frippery perhaps but there is something about new babies which encourages such things.
