100 Days of Making: Day 29

#day29 of #100daysofmaking: I've been commissioned by a coworker to make some baby sandals, and found several quite expensive patterns. I don't want to pay $5.50 for a sweater pattern, much less tiny shoes. But I found this free pattern and it is great! You make two soles and sew them together to make a nice sturdy shoe bottom since babies really do a lot of hiking on rough terrain and add the straps. I remember why I don't do many projects like this, lots of fiddly bits and sewing in of ends. But I got almost all of both done in an evening - I just need to find and sew buttons on and finish weaving in the ends and then can deliver them.
