Today was kind of crazy! We had internet people come to the house and then Micaiah was a fussy mess who barely slept all day. Our dog escaped (more like the internet people didn't SHUT the gate BACK) while we were shopping at Target and going to the gym. Micaiah screamed crying for 20 straight minutes, so I barely got a workout and we finished the day with visiting our Pediatrician who revealed that Micaiah's ears are in pretty bad shape and we meet with the ENT on Wednesday to discuss tubes. All that to say, I finished my 1st item on my project list: soft sole shoes; moccasin style!
Freshly Picked moccasins by Susan? They are to die for! Kind of pricey, but amazing nonetheless! I have no idea how she makes hers, but I found this free PDF pattern for soft sole shoes and decided to make mine with suede. I basically followed the tutorial at makingitfun, but revamped them to make them moccasins by adding an extra strip of fabric around the heel, which I cut in strips and an extra square piece I sewed on the front of the shoe and cut up to give it that moccasin look.
Those shoes I made for Cai actually came from this skirt my mom found at a garage sale for $1.
It was a pretty skirt, but it didn't fit right around the waist and I had better things in mind. However, I felt SO bad cutting up such a nicely made skirt!
I used a pair of shoes that currently fit Cai and the pattern from the tutorial above.
