retro baby sneakers

You know how some bloggers plan things weeks in advance and do awesome photo shoots to show off their projects?  Not me.  This is what I was sewing at 1 a.m. last night.  These little retro sneakers were made with another Sweet Pea Pattern (I really like them!) using faux leather and some yummy Amy Butler on the inside.

The shoes are a really great fit on Ruby, and even stay on her busy feet, but she was not interested in taking photos this morning (unless of course, you are interested in seeing a blurry baby crawling away from the camera).  I'll try to snap a photo of them in action at some point.

Those are sweet! Other than a heavy duty needle do you need anything eles special to sew through the heavier fabric?

OH MY GOSH. I LOVE these. Too many caps??? But really I do LOVE them.

Now I kind of want to make them. Where did you get that faux leather. Does it have a little metallic sheen??

Pretty much ah-dore it.
