Little leather boots

Postby MrC » Sat Sep 13, 2014 3:22 am

Whilst I was laid up in bed I decided to take up an old pass time. Leather work! I am making some boots for baby :)

I managed to get hold of some beautiful soft brown leather from an car upholsterer's clearance. I bought it online and was so surprised when it arrived. It's an entire hide and absolutely astounding quality. I am going to have great fun turning it into things. It will be go gentle on baby's little feet and my hands whilst sewing it :)

Here's a few photos of progress to date. They're so tiny! I can't wait to see what goes in them :) I've decided not to sew the strap on until baby arrives as I'm not quite sure of baby feet and where it has to go to be the most comfortable. I'll update after that, when they are full of little feet :widesmile:

It's been a while since I did it and I'm a bit rusty but it's great dip my 'toes' in the water again :)

Oh Joel, they are so sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing them on teeny feet too.
