 I found this pattern at my local store and just knew I had to have it.  My dear friend is becoming a Grandma for the very first time and she knows the baby will be a boy.  She will be "Oma" which is German for Grandma.  Today a mutual friend held a wonderful baby shower for her.

 I cut out the fabrics of my choice using a red gingham in honor of Oma loves red.  Here I am stitching per the pattern.  So far pretty easy.

Taking shape and getting trickier.  This is similar to making tiny little Barbi doll clothes.  I will not let tiny little pieces of fabric get the better of me.

 Here are the little tiny shoes completed.  I adore them.  They were worth the effort of making them from scratch.
They were well received at the shower today.  I might just have to make another pair of these adorable little shoes just for me.  I do adore shoes after all.
Our weather is continuing to be very hot and semi humid but with no rain to refresh and hydrate our very dry forest land.  I embrace the heat...after all it is summer and my favorite month of August.
Enjoy your lazy days of Summer...sunshine, ice cream, bubbles, sunflowers, and so much more are my favorite things...


  1. What a fun pattern, Sherry! I can only imagine how cute they'll look on the new babe. I have a pattern for little cowboy boots from Curby's Closet. I bet you'd love that, too! (I'll email a photo to you.)
    Restful Sunday, my friend.

    so sweet and a wonderful shower gift from you to- oma-
    Here we enjoyed a very warm weekend ,but almost too warm -and we also could use some rain now, as it is many weeks ago we had rain last..
