Matching Mousie and Mary-Janes
I had a lot of trouble with the strap, and a little trouble with the directions being a bit too vague. It wasn't until the shoes were both done that I realized they were right. I blocked them by stuffing plastic bags into them (so they looked like shoes instead of floppy nothings).
I made the large size (err on the size of L for babies, I say) and they actually fit Jasmine. Here is her cute, chubby foot, reluctantly modelling one shoe...
She couldn't get it off, which impressed me no end. The strap, when done up, simply doesn't fit over the foot. It holds the back of the heel up, and there's no stretch in the top edge of the foot. A great shoe for a baby!
Not Jasmine's, though. Off it goes to the neighbor's girl's girl.
Today I had lots of time off. As Nathan is working tomorrow at his "hobby job", he told me to stay out until 4 or so. I had 7 hours! So off I went to Bendigo to visit the Bendigo Woollen Mills.
It didn't occur to me to take my camera, but it was a beautiful day for tripping around the countryside. I think it must have been the warmest of all the warm days this week. It took me about 2 hours to get there, but I had a great time turning the Bargain Room inside out. I got a few things.
