My first baby shoe!



The interior is all peach colored OCV and the toe and heel are both some extra cotton I had laying around. I didn't have any elastic for the heel so I had to compromise with ribbon. lol

I only made one because it took me longer than I thought it would and I had done a bunch of other things prior to that single shoe; so I'm tired.

IDK how to sew knit fabrics that stretch..?? I did a little research online and I'm using the right needle now, but what's the secret? It just stretches out and then ends up uneven. I make it work-- but I'd like a better way to do it.
