Baby Shoe-aholic

The wonderfully creative and talented Dawn from The Little Speckled Egg, has some great tutorials on her site. I purchased the one for these adorable baby shoes...and now I am sooooo darn hooked. They are so sweet.....and Dawn's tutorial is wonderful. She has color pictures for each step of the way and great tips/instructions for making this a breeze to do.

I am making these for the show we are doing this weekend.....but what a great gift idea. Wouldn't it be fun to get someone's baby shoe and a baby picture to make these with...even some of mom's old costume jewelry or buttons to use. What a great way to give a personalize treasure. And what a fun idea for a wedding party, if you could get something personal from each of the girls to use. Or just a fun gift for your girlfriends.

What about a baby shoe night????? Have your girlfriends gather their treasures and come over for a fun night to make their own shoe and share memories with their pictures and treasures!!!

Yep, I am officially hooked!!! And if you aren't interested in doing these.....well then contact me and I will give you my address to send all the costume jewelry, baby shoes and buttons that you run across.....wouldn't want them to go to waste, would we???? LOL

  1. They look darling and I love your ideas about presenting them with a photo of the baby wearing the very shoe. Maybe I've been watching too much Antiques Roadshow and am thinking about provenance. :D

    Hope that you have fun at the show!


I love hearing your input, comments, ideas and encouragment.....thank you!!!
