I just looked back at the date of my last post and am shocked that it’s been over a week since I blogged last. This summer is flying by. It doesn’t seem possible that we’re already into July.

I’m gearing up for a craft show in a few weeks, and was looking to make some new things to take with me. Here’s what I’ve been working on the past few days:

I made some shoes!

Shoes! Aren’t they so much fun? I should probably call them slippers instead, since I’m not sure they’d completely hold up for wearing out and about. The pattern comes via I Think Sew. Her patterns are so cute and really reasonably priced. And the shoes….oh my goodness!


It took me a few days to figure out how to make them correctly, but now that I’ve got everything down, they’re a lot of fun to make. I’d like to have a nice pile of them to take with me to the show in two weeks!

And speaking of which! If anyone is semi-local, I’ll be at the I-Art Festival in Redford, Michigan July 24th and 25th. The show runs from 11-9pm on Saturday and from 10-4pm on Sunday. I’m hoping for great weather and a big turnout this year!

  1. Shoes! What an incredible thing to make … and they turned out adorable! Who would have thought?? Well, here’s another thing to add to my “make someday” list. Hope you sell a ton at the festival!

  2. Oooh, pretty! They look tricky to make but they’re so pretty – are they difficult? Now that I’m working from my home I think softie shoes might be really nice.

  3. These look so cute! I will definitely try to stop by the Redford show.

  4. Cute, Cute, Cute. I love shoes and these are very sweet. Will have to try those. Oh…if I only had a tutorial (wink, wink).

  5. Oh my super duper WOWzer cute. What a great pile…you are sure to do well with those. I think I’m buying that pattern, right now.

  6. Sarah – I showed my 84 year old mother your shoes (her birthday is today) and she wanted me to make her one of each of your fabrics THIS WEEKEND! lol I think its a hit. Hope you do well with them at the craft show. Be sure to let us know. I would love to add to my line. If the grandbaby will ever get here, maybe I can get back to other stuff. lol

  7. So pretty! Love them all.

  8. These are so wonderful I ordered the pattern! I am sure they will be a hit! I love your choice of fabrics as well.
