You know that saying about the cobbler's children having no shoes? Yeah, I can see how that can be true. I find it hard to buy shoes for my darling daughter, since my business is sort of making kid's shoes. But, man, it's hard to make it happen when you have orders for customers you know are waiting for their shoes.
Still, I knew fall was coming, so I started (a long time ago) making her a pair that would be more appropriate for the cooler weather. Yesterday, she managed to destroy her pair of Cozettes that she was wearing, by taking out the insole and chewing it to pieces. Two things: 1) yuck and 2) I had failed to glue her insoles in even though I know better. I never do that with customer's shoes.
Luckily, I was one night of sewing away from finishing her fall shoes. So I got right to it last night.
My husband says that they fit her personality perfectly...
I love my husband, he's kind of awesome.
And I love these shoes. Though, my daughter has some crazily skinny feet, so most shoe patterns are wider on her than I would like. I alter them so that they're skinnier. Some times it works better than others. This pair is one of the others. Oh well.
They'll do till she gets a pair of boots made by mom. Stay tuned. Baby boot orders are next on the agenda. I am so excited...
