A Little {adorable} Sewing Project



Aside from being fantastically delicious eye candy, the projects included will surely inspire you to add another goodie to your repertoire. If you have a moment, be sure to browse Sandi's site: Sandi Henderson Design. GORGEOUS.

To make the "Mary Jane Slippers", I chose to incorporate a well loved dress that no longer fits. I probably could have held on to the frock for another neighborhood munchkin, but it's a fave...and we're a bit attached. 


For those of you utilizing clothing in your projects, there is no need to rip seams. 
Simply cut along both sides of the seams and collect the larger pieces of fabric for your pattern. 

I also included a RK Jennifer Sampon print called "Block Party" to add some contrast. Love that fabric!
{In hindsight, wish I'd have purchased another few yards (OK a bolt) of this fabric...it goes with everything}.



 Divine footwear for the Lil' Miss...perfect for hardwood floor skating. 
OH Yay!

Happy Sewing,
Heather
