Angel with the black dress on
I made my babe, L, some shoes for her Christmas dress. She had just grown out of her adorable black patent mary janes and nothing else quite does the trick with a black velvet dress. So, I bought wool felt for $2.50 and tried a Martha Stewart pattern.
Well, they were fairly easy, and they are cute, but the darn things come off in a second. What's the point of shoes if mom has to carry them in her pocket? I found another pattern for "bitty booties" that looked cute (and easy) but I never got around to making it before christmas. we have a funeral to attend in January so maybe I will make them for that and see how they work.
