Natty Janes (Leather Baby Shoe Pattern)

Remember these shoes I made for Elsa a couple of weeks ago?  Well, when I made them I was doing a little pattern testing for my friend Delia.

And I'm excited to tell you that her "Natty Jane" leather baby shoe pattern is now available.  Look at all the adorable shoes she's sewn!

Her pattern is great.  Her instructions are clear and include lots of pictures.  I just made another pair recently.  I wanted to test the other version of the pattern and I still had some pink suede left (that the super-thoughtful Laura sent me a while back).  I thought it would be fun to switch it up a little and make them look a little like saddle shoes.

(I still need to add the snaps to the straps.)

The shoes require such a small amount of leather that you can buy the scrap bags of leather (that you can find at Hobby Lobby and use your coupon).  They make a great handmade baby gift.  So if you'd like to try your hand at baby shoes you can find Delia's pattern HERE.  

Thanks for reading.
