Tiny Threads

There has been another wave of babies lately! Three of my friends from the USU costume shop are either pregnant or have a cuddly newborn. A couple of weeks ago there were two baby showers, one for a girl and one for a boy. For the girl shower I made a dress, diaper cover and a little pair of wrap shoes. 
Here is a closer look at the shoes:
I made the pattern for Mina last fall. I wanted a pair of shoes that she couldn't pull off or lose. The soles are made from felted wool so they probably feel like slippers. The second pair, for the baby boy, were made out of lightweight blue striped canvas. I wish I would have taken a picture because they were really cute!
