girlie shoes and something new

Forgive the bad photos in this post. I was in a hurry to get these items wrapped and out the door for a friend's baby shower. First up, a girlie version of the Stardust Shoes pattern, made with one of my favorite fabric prints (Loft 1800 by Erin Michael for Moda):

And for something new, a baby wipes clutch:

I'm working on a tutorial for this, but it was super easy and I had almost all of the materials on hand. All you need is a plastic travel wipes case, some fabric, a small piece of batting, ribbon (optional), trimming, and a hot glue gun. Presto, change-o, you've got a chic clutch in which to store your baby's bum wipes. :)

For those of you who don't have a close, personal relationship with your hot glue gun, there are a couple of Etsy sellers that make these wipe clutches - check out PlainJane or Sweet 'n Sassy Baby.

The shoes are too cute. I love the clutch wipes carrier. Looking forward to the tutorial. I hope to make this among other items for a friend whose due in April.

The shoes are sweet, I bought a pattern (not the one you have) but it involved a little hand sewing so I gave up half way through lol. I have wanted to try my hand at the baby wipes thing, but wasn't sure how to cut the material so it wasn't all bunched around the edges...I suppose I'll have to wait for that tutorial! My baby is 4 months old, so I have a little bit of time :)

Those shoes are just too much. I LOVE them. I made a wipee cover for my little ones. Too easy and so cute.

The shoes are just adorable! I wish I had a babies' bum to wipe cause that clutch is cute too!

I know a few hip art chicks who would love that wipe box for their rubber stamping on the go kit!

Sara said...

I love the wipe case! Please please please post the tutorial! We'd be ever so grateful!

The Collettes said...

Oh yes, that is a cute wipe holder thingy. Perhaps it will disguise the wipes enough that my little girl won't get into it and pull all the wipes out.
I was just excited to see a new post! Yay!

MaryAnne said...

Both of these look great, and what wonderful ideas for baby shower gifts!

What do you use for your sole? I can't find the type of fabric she recommends in her pattern. :) Thanks! Jenn (jenn.pierson@gmail.com)

Super cute shoes! I was just wondering - do you use quilting or heavyweight cotton? Thanks. I love your blog and your little guy is too cute!

Marcy B. said...

OMG! Those are the sweetest little pair of shoes! I LOVE the fabric and I'm always looking for good fabric to do applique items! I'm due on Sat, if I have a girl, can I commission you to make me a pair???

Jill said...

I use quilting weight cotton.

katie said...

Wow! These are so cute. That's an awesome baby shower gift.

So, there's no sewing involved in the wipes clutch??? I'll be watching for the tutorial!

Those shoes are super cute and adorable. I love them!!

Brian, Ellen & Connor said...

hey jill -- thanks for sharing! :)on the diaper wipe case... two questions...did you cover the top and bottom with two seperate pieces of fabric? or did you use one? how did you get the edges smooth? thanks for your help, love the blog!

Julie said...

I couldn't wait for the tutorial because I had a shower coming up and I managed to make the wipe clutch! I can't believe it myself!
