lavender cloth baby shoes

My friend Sariah is having a baby girl any time now - her due date is today! I was totally late in the game making a present for her, but luckily, I am getting FAST at making these shoes. I whipped these out last night in just an hour and a half. I think I'm in love with the color combo.


UPDATE: You can find the pattern for these baby shoes at Stardust Shoes. Be sure to post photos of your results at the cloth shoes flickr group!

These are so cute. Have you ever heard of a site called ETSY? It's all handmade items....check it out. I sell on etsy. You sweet little shoes would sell like hotcakes. Very cute.

Good looking shoes :-)

Austin Maloney said...

Wow cool.

TileGirl said...

Wow, Jill, you are the crafty girl I want to be! I just randomly clicked on your blog because it said "homemade" and am astounded by everything you've made. You are a truly talented girl!! I think you must be invited to every baby shower, birthday party and potluck after people see all the awesome stuff you make!! I am a somewhat crafty girl myself, but don't find the time to do most of the stuff I want to. You can check out my blog, Jonas Update, and see that mostly I just do scrapbooking and photography, both revolving around my son.

Great to see your stuff. Keep up the craftiness!!

Nina said...

WOW you got comment explotion on this post! Go Jill! you deserve it those shoes are darling! I really want to try sometime but feel really intimidated

Jill said...

Thanks everyone for commenting! I've never had this many comments in a week, let alone one day, so this is pretty fun.

For any of you wanting to make these shoes yourself, you should definitely try it!!! Go to Stardust Shoes for the pattern:
http://stardustshoes.blogspot.com/2006/10/cloth-shoe-pattern.html

It is pretty easy (I've been sewing for less than a year).

ladaisi said...

I want to learn how to make those! Ever consider putting instructions on your blog?? I love stuff like that, and yours are ADORABLE.

Karen said...

Those are great! I got so sad when my oldest outgrew the booties phase! I'd love to try that myself but I'd probably stay up ALL night and end up with 2 lefties. I can't believe you made them in less than 2 hours! Are you just kidding to make yourself sound cooler? Please tell me you are so I don't feel so bad lol!

Allie, Dearest said...

These are so adorable!

Can I make them in adult size? They would be so cozy for around the house.

Jennifer said...

I am amazed at your design skills!! :-0 Nice color and everything!

Jenny said...

So cute! Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern. I just printed it out and plan to make some soon before my son's monster feet get any bigger!

Found your blog through blogs of note. Congrats! Loved the Burp Cloths in the earlier post! The frayed edge adds a lot of style to something so useful! These little shoes are adorable!

Susan said...

just discovered your blog and enjoyed the last few entries -- will have to read further back. I am going to make a few of those burp cloths, there are so many babies in my extended family that I am sure all those young moms would glady have a use for them! I have put you on my rss feed, so will be back to visit you regularly...

missknits said...

perilloparodies said...

who knew that shoes could be so elegant without a heel. gorgeous, colorful, fun, and looking really comfy... what more could you want in a shoe, especially for kids? i echo the other's sentiments... you did a great job and are very talented. thanks for sharing... have a great day.

Jaime said...

Beautiful work. Congrats on getting Blogs of Note!

Paula said...

I Jill!
I've lived in your country for almost 2 years and i miss it very much!
I love your way of life. It's very different from ours, here in Europe.
People here, aren't as friendly to each other. We tend to be more individualist.Unfortunately...
But, that's life! Different in each country, right?!
Congratulations for these beautiful things you do!
Bye!
Paula.

Pippa said...

57 comments! Blimey! I just wanted to say that I stumbled upon your blog today and found it very enjoyable indeed - what a delightful blog with so much inspiration. Lovely.

Pretty pencils said...

Hey! I just saw your blog and you have some lovely stuff going here! Have you considered getting paid for this stuff, and getting more people to read it? All you'll need to do is click on this link and you're in the right direction! Happy, rich, blogging! http://www.fastdatacash.com/in.php?ix=2474

Janey said...

I'm going to agree with everyone else and say you definately should be selling your beautiful items on Etsy! You will make a fortune! I love those little shoes and the burp cloths too! I'll be visting again soon!

Almarie said...

These are so lovely. I have tried once to make baby shoes and my son could only wear them when he was about two.LOL
I'll go get the pattern immediately.
Thanks for all your pretty stuff

life, views, reviews said...

Jill, your blog is fantastic. I'm not crafty, but aspire to be (meaning most of my projects come out far less wonderful than the visions I had for them LOL). These baby shoes are so cute that I'm going to try my hand at them. I think I'll have better luck with your onesie cookies though as I'm far better a baker than a seamstress. I'll definitely be checking out more of your blog!

Quincy C Brownfield said...

Very cute! What an enjoyable blog.

Kelly Eding said...

Hi Jill. I am a mom to five small kids in Michigan. I saw your blog link on my dashboard. I was wondering if you sell anything that you make? Do you have an ebay shop or something? Those shoes and felt food are adorable.

Jill said...

Hi Kelly -

I don't sell anything just yet. I have been thinking about starting an Etsy store for a while now, and just need to go for it. My problem is, I have so many neices, nephews, and friends having non-stop babies, that I usually give the stuff I make away. :)

Thanks for reading!

Aunt Mary said...

Jill
I am headed for retirement in a few years so am getting patterns for things like this to make and sell at the local craft fairs. I like to make quilted car seat covers from the quilt panels from the fabric store. We use them a lot up here in North Dakota. I also make hooded towels that are just from everyday washclothes and towels. If you have one of the new embroidery machines, you can embroider a cute picture right into the washcloth hood. My nieces, nephews and now great nieces and great nephews are getting them and use them long past their baby years. One family used them til they were ten! Lots of fun. I have an old machine that was my mothers but it works good for me. Thanks for the new ideas, and I'm looking forward to new things from you.

Editor said...

Hi,

These little slippers look so cute! I think you should consider using your natural talent and selling a few things. There was a woman who used to make crochet baby clothes where I used to work but she made them for fun and didn't want to sell them. I wanted one for my niece who was a baby at the time.

bowerbird said...

Those shoes have a great color combo- we loved lilac and green for our girls!!

Super Cute shoes!! I tried clicking on the Stardust Shoes site to get the pattern, but it will not open. Just wondering is there anywhere else that I could get that pattern from?

Thanks...
Kathy (Minnesota)

Jill said...

I didn't have any trouble opening the site, but here is a direct link to the pdf:

I am new to sewing, but would love to make these cute shoes for my newborn daughter. How do you determine sizing?
