I've been meaning to make some barefoot sandals for awhile now because my sister Robyn and I both hate to wear shoes. So I got busy the other night and made myself up a pair.
I made these out of a soft hemp yarn.
Not to bad for my first pair.
Then I thought I'd make a baby pair since I was babysitting one of the grandbabies and could use their little feeties as my model...
Here's what I came up with
and I already sold 2 pairs on Etsy the same day I put them on.
So then this morning I was looking at those cute little pillowcase dresses you see on Etsy and decided to make sample dresses for my 2 nieces, Hannah and Elizabeth.
I bought a double size lavender gingham sheet from the thrift store for my rag rugs for $3.00 and it came with 2 pillowcases, so of what better way to use the pillowcases than to make dresses.
I hope they fit the girls. I think I might have made the armholes a little to long, but we'll see and then we can make adjustments on my pattern after that.
