Had an intense week making these really cute baby shoes which I thought would make a useful addition to my growing stock of baby items. A girl has to start her shoe collection some time so why not from birth! The pattern for these Mary Jane Shoes is free on the internet and so easy to make. They are knitted in garter stitch and knit up quickly, easy to run up a pair while watching a favourite soap!! or listening to a favourite radio programme.
They are a good project to use up those small amounts of yarn in your stash and you can have a lot of fun decorating them, so make each pair different to match her favourite little outfit.
I created mine in soft pastel shades and decorated with little ribbon roses and cute little buttons. There is something about tiny little shoes that bring on the ‘aaahhh’ response.
