Chi was my awesome model! =)
First up: Ballet shoes onesie! I followed the tutorial by Make it and Love it found here. It's super fast and easy. Once I picked out my fabric and ribbon, it took me about 1/2 hour to finish.

I modified to laces a little bit from the pattern I bought. After testing out many baby shoes, I found that hardly any actually stay on those little kicking feet. So, I added a little tab in the back and threaded the laced through to tie them up ballerina style. They passed the test! Chi kicked and kicked and kicked, and they stayed on! Woot!
|Here you can see the tab I sewed onto the back of the shoe|
The problem with making shoes, is you have to make two, so it takes a little bit longer. =) These took me about one hour.
Lastly: A little girly headband! These rolled felt flowers are SOOO easy to make! See how to make them here. This probably took me about 15 minutes (not counting the half an hour it took for me to decided how to place them on the headband. =D).

Now go! Make a cute little homemade gift for your next baby shower!
