Don’t you love those words..”itty bitty”? It just makes me automatically think of something cute and when I saw this tutorial on FLEETING THING how to make these adorable ruffle shoes for a baby girl I had to give them a try. They were a little tricky..the pattern and full directions are on FLEETING THING blog
Here is the piece turned right side out getting ready to iron.
Now the tricky part….the little ruffles! They are tiny tiny….
Phew! Finally got it through! Now you gather each tiny piece into ruffles, one large and one small but they are both tiny! Then you sew the large ruffle onto shoe first and then the smallest ruffle and make sure you angle the ruffles off the edge of each side. See her directions.
Once ruffles are attached its time to sew the body onto the sole. See the wings…make sure they are there sticking out…it’s the ruffle edges…and you want to make sure they are sticking out…ask me how I know this???
Once you are sure they are sewn in…trim the wings off.
Turn shoe rightside out and just look at the itty bitty cuteness!!!!
Add some elastic hand sewed into each side of the shoe

I wish I had someone to make these for, they are just darling! I guess I will just have to start asking people to have babies so I can make them little shoes. Adorable!
