Have you ever thought about making shoes? On our Handmade Baby journey we decided to sew up some shoes for Baby.
Of course we turned to Twig and Tale for their Wild Things shoes pattern. After looking at the 7 different animals that can be made with this pattern, we decided to make gray baby mouse shoes which also fit the color scheme we had planned for Baby’s newborn capsule wardrobe.
We didn’t know what size to make for a newborn, so we went with size 2 (3-6 mo.) At 3 months, Baby is just now growing into them! Babies don’t really need to wear shoes anyway, but they are sure cute when she has them on!
Allegra, our in house embroiderer, sewed the tiny button nose, eyes and whiskers on these mouse shoes.
You can see she has room to grow into them!
Both of these shoes use Art Gallery Forest Floor Luna Rising Shadow Fabric (affiliate link) one for the exterior, and one for the lining leftover from our stop on the Forest Floor blog tour.
We used leather scraps for the bottoms of both these Wild Things shoes. Also, the mouse ears are leather scraps.
