Congratulations to a friend of mine and his wife on the birth of their daughter this fall. I wanted to do something special since Jayme has been so supportive of me and my quest with this little hobby of mine…
Top view. Each shoe is hand stitched and alledges finished with leather edge paint. In the center of the little hand-cut flowers I used a peridot (green) colored stone rivet.
These Mary Jane styled shoes have tie closures and are lined with a cotton blend polka dot fabric.
For add a more finished look, I top stitched along either side of the back stitches. Each of the little tags has a hand stitched “S” for Spadoni. The yellow ends on the ribbon are leather edge paint to prevent the ribbon from fraying. Now if I can only find the right box.
Thank you again, Tim for helping me with my site/blog.
I made these for a family member’s new daughter. All but the thread and rivets are recycled materials.
I used hook & loop tape on the straps. The shoes are fully lined with scraps from a dress shirt; I hand-cut and edge painted the flowers for a little more color.
