Make Your Own Pair of Baby Shoes

I love crafting in general but sewing is my favourite. Once upon a time I used to sew a lot, but one little super energetic little girl later this hobby somehow got pushed to the side a bit.

Then the other day I got an email from Karolina, a lady behind this new brand from Poland called First Baby Shoes. She wanted to tell me all about a brilliant idea they came up with – to design kits that contain everything in order for you to hand-sew your baby’s first shoes. So all the shoe parts (already pre-cut and holes pre-made), two needles and a special yarn are in the kit and all you need is a little time.

They have kindly sent me one kit of AKI model in green to try out and now I have a first pair of shoes waiting for my baby boy! Aren’t they super cute? Everything comes in a beautiful cardboard gift box so if you plan to make them as a gift there’s not much for you to worry about. Instructions that come with are in English but there are also video tutorials here that come in much more handy by my opinion.

The shoes should fit an average 9 to 15-month-old and are made from leather and the soles from super light, flexible and anti-skid gum and all the elements are produced in EU which is kind of rare but that much more appreciated these days.

If your in North America there is a sweet woman who sells similar kits. The shoe isn’t quite the same as these kits but she sells shoe patterns that are. The baby/toddler kits “first footsteps” come with everything you need, pre-cut, ready to go. So great. And everything she uses is recycled and as eco friendly as she can.
