Sveva’s baby shoes

creakit.jpgI’m not as clever and patient as Esther is when it comes to making things from scratch — be it painting, drawing or sewing. Nonetheless, from time to time, I like to keep my hands busy by making little things, but I am seriously constrained by my abilities and so the projects are never something you would write home about.
That’s why I was so happy when I discovered this little baby shoes DIY kit by Crea, a family company run by lovely Roberta and her husband Roberto. They’ve invented these little kits that contain everything you need to make lovely baby shoes for a newborn baby. There’s the pre-cut fabric, the cotton thread, the buttons, and very detailed instructions (also in English) on how to assemble them and also a few suggestions on how to personalise them to make them really unique and truly your own.
It says you need about 2½ hours to make them; it honestly took me a bit longer but I was so proud of the result!
They have a winter and a summer collection, which are available on their Etsy shop, and I really think these kits make a wonderful present for an expectant mum. She could then spend some time, maybe during those last few weeks, making a little gift for the newborn with her own hands — you would be giving her much more than a pair of shoes!

So cute! And it’s true, when something is handmade it makes it so much more special and unique!!

These are super cute and look like they have a good chance of staying on tiny feet. And they look like they don’t need a sewing machine either – perfect for a project on the go.

When my first child was born, I started making things by sewing (patchwork blankets but also small trousers and so on…). I’d never took a needle in my hands before, so it was very surprising for me the wonderful sensation of create stuffs only by myself (for a long time my creative side of life was singing in a choir). Now I can’t immagine my life without a small moment of creation: buying a lot of books with project and wonderful photos and a lot of fabrics also (how many scraps!), take my needle in my hands from time to time, involve my 5 years old child in some new project. Fantastic!
