Teeny Weeny Baby Shoes
I don’t know about y’all but stitching for Little and babies makes my wee heart sing.
Firstly, there are an abundance of adorable prints out there – and I mean in the world of fabric stores not just my own stash, although it has reached the point where is it starting to look like I’m setting up my own fabric store.
Secondly, these mini-makes are often packed with clever stitching techniques or new skills to try out and, as they are on a smaller scale, they instantly feel more manageable and a lot less terrifying than if you were to contemplate them on a full sized garment.
Thirdly, baby makes are usually quick and fun to make. That means that they are the perfect project to work on when you have only a limited amount of time to pursuer your creative pastimes in the whole scheme of your busy day-to-day life. This shorter make times means that you will often finish them in one sitting, and you get that instant buzz of satisfaction that comes from finishing up a project – and I know I’m not alone in thinking that we all need more of that feeling of satisfaction in our lives!
Lastly, and by no means lastly, makes for babies and Littles are usually hugely appreciated and enjoyed and that, my friends, is a winner for everyone involved!
I have been working on a couple of big deadline of late, most of which have been keeping me firmly at my sewing machine – one of my tasks is to work on a few new quilts (and finish up some long languishing quilt tops) ready for this year’s Festival of Quilts. So, when the sweet folks over at the Sewing Directory asked if I’d like to work on a sweet new baby project, I literally jumped at the chance!
