It took me awhile to get my crafty mojo back. Actually, I'm still working on getting it back. Ideas and motivation aren't lacking, it's simply lack of time that's the problem. Oh, and energy.
Anyway, I did manage to squeeze a few projects in here and there. Such as these little shoes:
The pattern is from Making Children's Clothes by Emma Hardy. I'm not usually one for using or following patterns, but the pattern for these shoes was super easy to use. I can't wait to try out more patterns from this book.
The top fabric is from my beloved Superbuzzy, and the polka dot lining is vintage. (Another under the house find!) The soles are made from suede.
These shoes went so well that I decided to make a dressier pair out of pleather.
This pair went fine until the strap. Okay, sleep deprivation + inside outy lefty righty shoe construction = misapplied straps. Ooops. I'm too embarrassed to let her wear them in public, actually.
Here's hoping the next three months will contain a little more time and energy to make stuff.
