Teeny Tiny Zebra Shoes

I have a friend who is expecting a baby and she is so sick. She vomits constantly and finally had to be hooked up to a feeding tube and monitored by a home health nurse. Poor thing! My sister went through a similar experience about a year ago, so I have seen how hard a situation like this can be. I wondered how I could help my sweet friend and realized that the best thing I can do is give her a reminder of the reward at the end of the suffering.

Do you think these will help?

These little fabric shoes are so teeny tiny and adorable that I just know they will remind my friend of the baby she is working so hard for.

I used the pattern found here. The only change I made was to add the ruffle up the front of each toe. Because ruffles make everything cuter, right?!

  1. They turned out super cute! What size would you say they end up being? Newborn? 3-6 mo?

  2. Polly,

    I actually adjusted the proportion of the patterns so they would be skinnier, because I've made them before and they are too wide. I think they would have to be for a pretty small baby though. They are so teeny!

  3. Sew cute! (Get it?!) I gave Rachel her first pair of pink socks for Adele which she kept on the fridge as a reminder of what all her suffering was for. I think these are a perfect gift!

  4. Alright, these would have definitely been cute enough to hang on my fridge as my inspiration. I hope she enjoys them!
