Project 42: Finished baby shoes and lessons learned

December 6, 2011

There is the baby wearing my shoes! I wasn’t totally happy with how they turned out, but they fit the baby and she wasn’t slipping all over the place so I consider them a success. If I were to make them again (and I have enough material left over to make many more) there are certainly some things I would change.

Lessons learned:
– Bias tape and twill tape are not the same thing.
– A pattern with wrong sides sewn together may look easier, but the finishing work to cover those edges is going to be much more fussy. Trust me on this one.
– Babies aren’t too picky about their shoes.

Next up: the 8 final projects in a pre-Christmas blitz. Here we go!
