Thanks again to everyone who gave me suggestions on how to improve my shoes - as you can see, I really took them into consideration.
A few of the changes that I made:
- A darker fabric to make the white elastic "pop"
- A white trim around the bottom to make them look more like tennis shoes
- A more interesting liner fabric
- A brighter sole (quilted this time)
Also, thanks for the photography advice and the tip on the awesome photo editing site, http://www.picnik.com/. I love it! Apologies for not shooting these outside, on some nice green grass, as many of you suggested. Unfortunately, there is no natural sunlight available at 2:30am, and if I'm not a procrastinator, I don't know what I am. :) Next time!
Here's a photo to give you an idea of the size - I think they'll fit a baby from about 6-12 months.
Thanks again for all your advice and support!
