Baby Feet

I have a serious weakness for baby feet. Always have. Always will. I remember back when I wasn't interested in having children and the two things that always got me were baby shoes and paint swatches. Something about dressing tiny feet and painting children's rooms appealed to a part of me not governed by logic and the desire to sleep.

When Emma was born I can still remember those round little toes, soft soles never walked on and her narrow little heels that wouldn't keep cute little shoes and socks from falling off. I have footprints from when she was a week old that still make me melt.

In keeping with my love of baby feet, I've been busy making Christmas gifts for those little baby feet I see most often.

I found this pattern from the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog and it's so simple yet adorable. The pattern is for 0-6 months but I think it could go a bit beyond that. Not far enough for me to make Emma a pair, but I think it might fit up to 9 months on a small child. This blog has so many cool gift ideas that I need to get crackin' if I want to get a few more projects done in time to mail!

Speaking of making gifts... I actually followed your instructions and made a 1/2 batch of the homemade clay. Then we let Bridgett go to town. It was AWESOME! I added a little bit of glitter paint to the ornaments she painted and they look great. Thank you so much for the idea.
