"Those shuz are MINE!"

Baby shoes are really hard to make!  I know you're looking at these little buggers and thinking, 'how hard can it be to take apart a pair of Robeez from the thrift store and sew it all back together?' (Hey wait, that's a good idea).  

Well, since I just always haaaave to line things, these are lined, with a gray suede sole and have 4 different fabrics in them.  Now, if I had an industrial straight stitcher that could power through all this without demons, surely it would have been much easier.  Maybe I should talk nicer to my machine in these times of trial- where I'm holding 4 layers of different fabric together with different stretches and sewing around the curve of the baby-sized heel.  I always berate it.  I'm totally brandist and make remarks about how if I had a Juki instead of a cheap Singer, I wouldn't be having this problem.

Anyway. Shuz.

For the baby boy:

Hard to get a shot with shuz in action, but here's a close one (/pegleg).
