Goodie Blue Shoes

Here is my second (and last!) item for Blue Week. My son's best friend and his wife have just returned from Taiwan with their newly adopted baby son. I had planned to give them the pair of Trainer Baby Booties which I had on sale in my Etsy shop, but they were sold at the exhibition I am participating in this weekend, so I had to quickly make another pair.

I will make a couple of matching bibs and perhaps a small nappy bag to complete the set. I can't wait to meet the new little man in their lives.

Oh, and the blue pants I made earlier this week also sold at the exhibition, which was a bonus!

And now on to Week Two - Yellow.

oh, they're gorgeous!!! I love the little trains! so, so sweet :)
(The exhibition sounded successful? well done!)

Bec said...

Wow Robyn, I LOVE these!!! I really love the way the train picture continues across the shoes. I think I also have a very big soft spot for anything train related, as my son is absolutely train mad - and has been since he was 12 months old. Glad to hear the exhibition went so well. Must be a lovely feeling! Cheers, Bec.

Thanks for the lovely comments, girls. I am married to a locomotive-aholic, so it was impossible to avoid this particular fabric!

oh! these are gorgeous! what a stunning colour!

I was just looking at your little shoes on etsy. do you ever make them in 00? (I believe 0-3 months, your smallest size, is 0, isn't it?)

Hi Melanie

Thank you for your very kind comments. Unfortunately I do not make them any smaller than 0-3 months, as they become almost impossible to manoeuvre on the sewing machine if they are any smaller. However, babies do grow!

Melanie said...

yes, but dolls don't ;)

I really do love your little shoes, they're by far the nicest ones I've found! Don't suppose you'd consider selling either a pattern, or a cut out kit of fabric, in a size 00, that I could hand stitch?
