Free Pattern Friday: Mary Jane Baby Shoes

Last week we had the infant peasant dress, and this week I’m sharing another pattern that only uses a little bit of fabric and makes a perfect baby gift.
Aren’t these Mary Jane Baby Shoes just adorable?!
I’ll admit, I’d never made baby shoes before and I was really worried about sewing something that tiny on my machine.  It really wasn’t hard!  In fact, the hardest part was the top stitching, and that’s not even in the pattern instructions.  But the fabric I used was too stiff for turning those little strap tubes, so I improvised.
I used an upholstery fabric sample for the outside of these.  It’s mocrofiber suede.  (so soft!)  I was able to squeeze three pairs out of the little sample piece, which was smaller than a fat quarter.
These shoes are the perfect project for fabric scraps you can’t bear to throw out.  You know, the ones that are big enough you feel wasteful, but too small to do much with.  This fabric was a scrap I pulled from my mom’s scrap bag, and I’m so glad I finally found the perfect project for it!
Have you made these? What did you think? I’d love to see yours, add it to the linky!  But really, add anything you’ve made with a free pattern in the last while.
