Pink and Black Mary Janes with polka,dot ribbon and buttons are the crowning touches to these retro baby shoes. I’m really into baby shoes and making up the patterns as I go along is so exciting to do because I never know what they’ll look like until the end. Sometimes I even surprise myself! It’s so fun to first pick a color to start with and then make a sole for the first little shoes you’re creating. Next I envision in my mind what Era I’d like to recreate in this little shoe. O.K. I have to admit these latest little tootsie covers are highly inspired by the upcoming birth of my 17th grandbaby daughter. She made her appearance today at 2:31 a.m. and at 7lb 8 oz and 20 in. she’s the perfect little beauty! I can’t wait to hold her in my arms and breathe in that amazing baby smell again! Nothing better in this world to revitalize your faith in humanity than to look into those beautiful baby eyes and breathe in their warmth and pureness. Ahhhh…oh, sorry, I digress but I just can’t wait to snuggle her! Back to the little tootsie covers. I’ve made several pairs of retro styles to choose from and add to any little fashionista”s wardrobe! Mary Janes were and still are the most popular style for little princess feet. I started playing with the style and added little socks to these Mary Janes which completes her little dress-up. Next, I love ruffles! Every little girl should wear ruffles that are dainty and lacy and just too darn cute! See these little white ruffled shoes with the punk bows and pink polka dotted buttons. I can just imagine my little munchkin in these dainty little shoes on Sunday! Now, my youngest son has an addiction. Yes, an addiction like no other I’ve ever seen. I thought Amelia Marcos had the market on shoes but nooooo, my son has the biggest collection of wild tennis shoes I’ve ever laid eyes on! I think he gets it from his wacky mom of coyrse! (who me?) So, I had to start my new angel off on the right feet so to speak. Check out these little wild tennis shoes I designed! Are they just too much or what? Gotta keep up with daddy little one! As I create these shoes I’ve learned a lot of new things, too. 1. It’s ok to make a mistake in the beginning and realize it when you’re just about finished and have to rip it all out and start all over! 2. Not everything I imagine will come out the end of my crochet hook. Yes, dear crocheters, we don’t know everything so we try, try again until we get it right or…close enough, whichever comes first 3. It doesn’t matter how many times you attempt something and fail, it’s how many times you pick up your work again and try, try, try! Yes, I’ve learned a few things, made a few mistakes and tried my best but the one thing I find every time I pick up my crochet hook…crocheting is my drug of choice. When my nerves are shot and someone or something is standing on my very last nerve, I just look at my yarn and I know everything will be alright. Enjoy your work and calm your nerves and no matter what keep on creating! Welcome baby girl, gramma’s got your tootsies covered! ♡
