My First Giveaway!!

**This giveaway is now closed. Winner will be announced tomorrow.**

So I'm going to try this giveaway thing.

The Prize: I'm going to give away 2 pairs of the awesome shoes below. You get to choose if you want brown leather or purple.

How to win: Just leave a comment telling me which leather you would want and if there is a color scheme you would like or if you just want me to use my creativity and choose for you. Simple, huh? You can comment as many times as you like. I am going to randomly select 2 winners.

Deadline: I'm going to leave this open until October 11th. So tell everyone to hurry and enter.

Even if you don't win, and would still like to have a pair, let me know. I am working on the numbers to decide a price, but I would love to make them. And if you're the creative type and just want to make them yourself, you can get the pattern on the link below.

Good Luck!!

Shoe Fetish

I finally got a chance to make these adorable shoes. I got the pattern a long time ago from HERE and have been meaning to make them. I've been looking at thrift stores for some leather purses or pants or anything to make the sole out of. The pattern just uses fabric, but I wanted them a little more sturdy. So I finally got a hold of two pairs of leather pants, one brown the other purple ( I'm not sure I personally know anyone that would ever wear leather pants, let alone purple leather pants.) I'm going to be able to get a bunch of shoes out of them. The shoes don't take a lot. You could easily use whatever scraps you have on hand. That's what I did. The first pair were the blue and white ones.

I loved them and Donevan wears them a lot. Then I made some for Iris with the purple. I actually had to adjust the pattern a little. And the first pair I made for Iris were a little too wide, so I adjusted the pattern again and ended up with these cute ones.

Then I made the awesome John Deere pair. I really love these. And the best part of them all is the elastic around the ankle that keeps them on. Normally shoes get kicked off really easily, but these stay on. So anyways, hope you like them.
