I have a friend who is due with her first baby in just a few weeks. So, of course, I had to make the sweet little bundle something and send it along to Mama. Take a look!
I made these cute little shoes using the tutorial from this blog. I had never worked with interfacing, before, but once I figured that out, it was a breeze (aside from the part that I thought I was being "smart" and changed up a step from the tutorial, only to find out, I misunderstood and had to go back to redo it the way it instructed).
I know it looks like they are accented in red, but it is actually more of a deep mulberry color. Sort of deep fuschia, maybe? The soles and buttons are corduroy in the same mulberry color, and the inside lining is a soft yellow flannel. I just love them!
You may have seen this post where I made a little elephant for a friend's baby. I have made this little gal (or guy depending on the recipient) a few times and just love it. I got the pattern out of a craft magazine called Stitch. This time, I took the same concept and came up with this little owl.
