The elves and the shoemakers and flo

There is a wee rumour that I may just be a little bit on the ADHD side of life,  as it seems no sooner do I find something new to make as I’ve lost interest and found something else altogether.  Last week it was jewellery – this week it’s dinky wee  shoes.

To be honest, I blame Google.  I was searching for a pattern for a new cuddly doohicker, when out of the corner of my left eye, just by the rim of my specs, I spotted the magical words ‘baby shoes’.

I didn’t mean to look.

Honest.

But – not for the first time – the voices spoke to me , and before I knew it I was halfway through the left shoe, leather sole and all!

In the end I found two patterns I sort of liked, both of which I adapted because, as my husband puts it, I “just have to fiddle with things”, and here’s some of what I’ve whipped up so far, in under 48 hours…

So now I have recruited some testers to take the shoes and have a good play and run around in them and generally put them through their paces, so I can make any changes needed and then make heaps more!  I can’t wait!

If you want to see what I’ve been making, pop over to my Facebook page and join in the general silliness…
