Wool Felt Baby Shoes

I always try to have a handmade baby gift stash on hand.  And I knew these simple shoes would be great to add to my collection.  My office has 3 pregnant girls all due this Fall.  The wool felt will be perfect for the Fall/Winter season.

These baby shoes are sized for 3 months. 

They come together very quickly using a blanket stitch.

The original tutorial from Purl Bee used a tiny piece of elastic at the opening of the shoe to give it a little more support.  I only used the elastic on 2 of the shoes.  For the other 2 pairs I used my Big Shot and cut out 2 small flowers then added a small baby button in the middle of each flower and sewed on.

I love using the blanket stitch.  It looks so professional when care is taken to ensure spacing is all the same on top and underside of your project.

I buy my wool felt here.  I love that they only charge me for the actual weight of the felt I buy.  So shipping & handling is so much cheaper than many other places out there.

    I REALLY hope you are planning on sharing this over at The DIY Dreamer... From Dream To Reality!! :)

  2. I know this an old post, but just thought I'd say: I think the flowers are the perfect touch! I was just looking at purl bee's tutorial before I stumbled upon this post, and I was looking ideas of something to add to the plain design and your flowers inspired me. I think I'm going to do layered stars instead of the flower shapes since mine will be for a boy. :)
