♥ Baby Shoe Pin Cushions ♥

Ahhh....So sweet!
I found these adorable little baby shoes in the bottom of a box of donations for our church's youth garage sale last summer.  I pulled them out simply because they were so sweet looking but I also thought someday I would find something neat to do with them.   
 Well that day has come.  I happened to find over at the Feathered Nest Blog a tutorial for making a baby shoe pin cushion.  Perfect!  Just the creative inspiration I needed.
I embellished them with vintage buttons, lace, crinkled seam binding, and ribbon.  I ended up gluing this one to a plate I already had.  It reads Shout to the Lord all the earth... Psalms 100:3
  I made both shoes.  I kept one for myself and gave the other to my mother because she's a seamstress.

  I'm so pleased with the way they turned out.  They are really quite lovely.  

I enjoyed making these so much I'm already on the hunt for more baby shoes.  I'm thinking this would make a nice gift for an expecting mom who sews.  
I haven't found any shoes yet but I have gotten a few other things I can transform into pin cushions.

It's on the ever growing list of future projects.


What have you created lately?


  1. Really sweet. You mastered the project!

  2. How precious! I have some little baby shoes and may try to make one of these. How cute sitting next to the sewing machine! Happy Sunday!

  3. This is just precious! I have all five of my kids first baby shoes on a shelf where I see them every day. Such sweet memories! Have a great week from the enchanted oven.

  4. I love this idea - I think baby shoes are so cute and do use them for planters, but this is so special with all the embellishments.


Your thoughts and comments are appreciated. I take time to read each and every one and will do my best to return the visit.
