Here are a couple things i’ve sewed and knit in the past and given away to friends for new babies:
These were so easy to make, I found a tutorial here. I happened to have a scrap of Japanese print cotton, and I thought it would be fun to have a face on each foot. I made these for Dil, Gabe’s nephew, as he was just starting to walk, and he wore them to death.
Here’s the back, and i’m not sure it’s visible but the sole was this purple faux-suede that was furry on the other side, so the inside of the shoe was quite cozy, perfect for little baby feet. The only thing I modified was the sole – the pattern makes for a very wide toe area, so i had to take the fabric in a bit.
