On my desk.........

On my desk today sees a finished pair of little shoes. I have been wanting to try and make a pair of these little things for ages and ages. There is really no reason for me to do them as I don't have any little ones around but they were made with a friends 5month old girl in mind. I tell you she needs them at the moment. This tropical paradise we live in is having a bit of a cold spell. Temperatures are plummeting to 22 degrees. Anyway back to the shoes. They are dead easy, not to fiddley. I only had one problem and that was with the elastic. I think I pulled it a bit to tight and they sort of pulled up at the sides( you can see I put a bit of cotton wool in them to plump them out abit so it wasn't so noticeable). I thought I would try another pair and see if I can rectify that but firstly I will try them on my little model Eloise tomorrow and see how they look.

The pattern comes from here if any of you are interested.
