Last night at 11:00 I decided that I would like to try my hand at making Claire some little TOMS style shoes. I LOVE soft soled shoes for babies, I also LOVE shoes that slip on like socks. So I combined the idea of TOMS style with soft sole and elastic back.....
...and this is what I got. I like them! I want to draft them a little less wide next time, but I love the look!
I used a fabric for the sole that was almost an outdoor weight fabric so I think they will wear well even though she is running around now.
Claire Louise was not in the mood for a photo shoot today! Shortly after this picture was taken my little angel fell asleep, and is still OUT! Sweet baby!
I think she needs a purple pair too! I'm thinking of getting an old worn in leather jacket from the thrift store to cut up and use for soles. Wouldn't this make a cute baby shower gift? Especially for boys, I always have the hardest time thinking up boy gifts! xo, Sam
