Announcement   Hello and welcome to my shop! My goal is to design shoes that look great while still maintaining comfort. They can be worn for any occasion whether it's formal or casual. The shoes you see are examples of my work. I welcome custom work so if you like one style, but another color, I'll be happy to mix it up. Any of the details can easily be changed, like thread color or snap style. Just send me a message with your special request, and I can let you know what's possible.

JANUARY 2015 NEW POLICY: Please double check the size you order and follow the size chart that is shown in each listing. I can no longer accept exchanges unless it is my error. Each pair of shoes is a custom order - made up within two weeks of your transaction.

The current shipping time is up to 2 weeks. Thank you for your patience!

When choosing size, it's very important to measure carefully and choose according to the correct length. The age chart is only approximate as each baby grows differently. The maximum amount of grow room recommended is 1/2 inch.

To measure baby's foot, place it on a piece of paper and trace around. If you need help deciding which size, or for a custom fit, give me the length and width of baby's foot and I will add 3/8" for length and 1/8" for width.

I have decided not to sell wholesale, due to the fact I'm just keeping this a small venture to make a little extra household income while still caring for my little ones. I don't want to take too much time away from them.

The pattern looked to be well written, but was missing a few details. How much to overlap and failing to mention seam allowance in a few places made this pattern a one and done for me. It's a shame because her shoes are adorable, just didn't work for new and I've sewn other tricky patterns.

I'm sorry you struggled with this pattern. I'm here to answer any questions you may have if something is not clear to you in the pattern.

About

How I started making baby shoes

I started by making these shoes as gifts, then quickly moved on to selling them at bazaars. I kept hearing about a wonderful website called "Etsy". Finally in January of 2010, I took the time to set up my shop. This shop works perfectly for me, and the sales keep me just busy enough without becoming overwhelming. Thanks Etsy, for giving me a career I love!

    I have tried many other hobbies as a stress-reliever from the daily cares of raising a large family. I found that sewing was the most relaxing for me. I even enjoy mending!

All of the footwear I sell have been designed by me. The original idea was to re-use those leather garments that have become outdated. As the shop gets busier, I have been finding that it is hard to keep up with certain popular colors like white and cream so I now purchase some of the leather new.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! If you are wishing to wear these shoes on baby right away, please resist the urge to order up as these are soft soled shoes that need to fit snugly. Measure baby's foot carefully and choose the size according to length and width. The age is only approximate as all babies grow differently. Allow 1/4 to 1/2 inch for growth. Any more than the recommended amount of grow room will not fit baby's foot properly.

To measure baby's foot, place it on a piece of paper and trace around. If you need help deciding which size, or for a custom fit, give me the length and width of baby's foot and I will add 3/8" for length and 1/8" for width.

I am happy to rush your order for an additional $15 which includes priority shipping to those customers who live within the United States. Please contact me before your purchase so I can set up a special listing. Expedited shipping internationally is quite expensive, but I will be happy to look into the cost for you.
