I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

DIY Ruffled Denim Ballet Flats

   This week I sized up my pattern for Abigail's ballet flats, and figured out how to make a sole!!! I found thick shelf lining at Walmart, it sews wonderfully and adds a lot more sturdiness to the soles of her shoes. Here is a link to my pattern that I made for her shoes and the step by step instructions :) Ballet Flats Tutorial.  I also came up with a boot pattern that I will share soon!


 
  Abby was all about the sass today! haha I just have to laugh at these next few, two year olds...


 She is actually watching TV in this one haha.



  Not sure WHAT is going on here! LOL


Don't you want to smile pretty for Momma?


  I finally got a smile out of her when, Cole was being silly to make her laugh!



  Here are a few close-ups of these shoe, p.s. Did I tell you that I am just in LOVE with them. They seriously make me want to make a pair for myself! haha Her shoe collection is bigger than mine!






 
  This pattern is super easy and I can whip out a pair in about an hour! Not to shabby if I do say so myself. I went to Hancock Fabric's today and picked up so cute material to play with over the weekend! Hopefully I will have some cute BOOTS to show off next week!!! Wish me luck.


Thanks for stopping by,

Jeni

  10. Beautiful! You make these look so easy (I have a pattern to make them (from somewhere else) and it's so technical with so many pieces - and steps - that I haven't gotten started... I think I will be making these instead!!). Thanks!

  18. What a great blog you have! I just came across it by chance, I'm looking up DIY candy bar covers and your blog popped up. You are so very crafty! I love this particular post because I have a niece that is disabled and one of my sisters challenges is finding slippers - as ordinary as that may sound for other parents for my sister its a challenge. I'm sure the tutorial you share for these little slippers will help me sew some up for my beautiful niece, Andrea. Thank you so very much - off I go to follow your blog and keep browsing =D

  19. Super cute! How did you do the ruffles? I've been trying to figure it out but so far no luck. I want to make these to go with a flower girl dress I'm making but have never done shoes before.
